Development, fabrication and characterization of sensors based on surface waves


Work description

The project aims at the study and development of optical sensors, based on one-dimensional structures manufactured with multilayers of different materials, with high sensitivity response and spectral resolution to external index variations, which will be functionalized for the detection of specific molecules. It is intended to develop a final prototype that allows the use of the studied and developed sensors and that can be easily adapted to different types of target molecules.
