Projet PlasBioSens

Process development for novel low temperature plasma synthesized nanocarbon-based biosensors

The main objective of the project is the development of novel methods for the synthesis and functionalization of conductive nanocarbons for a new generation of field effect transistor sensors suitable for high sensitivity bio-sensing applications.

This highly interdisciplinary research will be performed by 4 complementary laboratories: plasma-processing, nanomaterials, electronics, biology. Advanced carbons (carbon nanotubes, carbon-metal nanocomposites…) will be synthesized and primary functionalized by means of low temperature plasma-based techniques.

Numerous in-situ diagnostics of the plasma will be performed in combination with the surface analysis to understand and control the grafting of functional groups at carbon surfaces.

This will enable the targeted coupling of antibodies/proteins important for development of sensors for the detection of allergens or allergy markers in biological fluids.

The knowledge transfer is targeting the field of the technological/industrial applications of plasma discharges as well as the the material and sensor production.
