Event details

A series of lectures by Paolo Ugo, University Ca’ Foscari of Venice, Italy


Lectures as follows:


Tuesday May 9th                  10:00-11:00               Building 34, Room 2003

Tuesday May 9th                  16:00-17:30               Building 34, Room 4005

Wednesday May 10th            10:00-11:00               Building 13, Room 3021

Thursday May 11th               10:00-11:00               Building 85, Room 2213



The lectures will deal with the development and application of arrays of nanoelectrodes as sensitive tools for environmental electroanalysis and biosensing purposes. At first, the talk will introduce the nanofabrication procedures, such as template synthesis and e-beam lithography, that are used to prepare arrays of nanowire and nanodisk electrodes. Recent advances on the preparation of asymmetrically functionalized nanowires under the shape of Janus nanoparticles will be presented together with principles and application of open and closed bipolar electrochemistry.  Stress will be put on electroanalytical applications and array-based biosensors for detecting analytes of environmental and clinical interest, together with recent examples of sensitive detection schemes which exploit electrochemically induced luminescence.
