Lluís F. Marsal of University Rovira i Virgili

Topic:

Engineering structured porous materials for bio sensing applications

This lecture will explore the application of low–cost technologies based on micro- and nanoporous silicon and nanoporous alumina in biosensing applications. The structural engineering of porous silicon and alumina [1-2] and its surface and interface functionalization in the micro-nanoscale regime allows for development of new biosensing platforms.

We present different strategies to modify the pore morphology and we design and fabricate specific structures with enhanced optical for detection [3-4]. Following, we analyze and discuss different techniques of detection and performance in sensing proteins, enzymes, molecules and heavy metal ions [5-6].

Results demonstrate that this kind of nanostructures open new possibilities in applications of sensing substances of interest to the health and the environment.

Biography:

Lluís F. Marsal is a Full Professor and Distinguished Professor at the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Engineering of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Spain. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1997 from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (1998-99).

In 2012, he received the URV's RQR Award for quality in research and in 2014, he received a 2014 UniSA Distinguished Researcher Award from the University of South Australia (UniSA) and the ICREA Academia Award (the highest award for university professors in Catalonia, from ICREA Institute). Since 2019, he is the chair of the Region 8, IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) Subcommittee for Regions/Chapter. He is also a member of the IEEE EDS Education Committee and the IEEE EDS Technical Committee on Photovoltaic Devices. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA), senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and also an active member of the Electrochemical Society (ECS). Dr. Marsal serves as a member of the Distinguished Lecturer program of the Electron Devices Society (EDS-IEEE). He has been a member of advisory and technical committees in several international and national conferences and has been visiting professor at several universities and research institutions (CINVESTAV - Instituto Politécnico Nacional, McMaster University, University of South Australia, CIC biomaGUNE, CSIC). He has co-authored more than 220 publications in international refereed journals, two books, five book chapters and holds three patents. He has presented over 30 invited lectures in international conferences and has participated in over than 80 national and international projects. He supervised/co-supervised 18-PhD students and mentored of 6 post-docs. His current research interests focus on the engineering of photonic nanostructures based on micro- and nanoporous silicon and nanoporous alumina for photonic biosensing platforms and biomedical applications. He is also interested in organic and hybrid nanostructured materials to enhance light-matter interactions for optoelectronic devices.
