Wireless biological sensor using 2D materials (Graphene , Molybdenium disulfide)
Published : 19 December 2016
The main goal of the post-doctoral position is the fabrication of a biological sensor using 2D materials and that can be remotely addressed thanks to a RF antenna simultaneously fabricated alongside the biosensor.
The post-doctoral associate will be in charge of the fabrication and characterization of the prototype. Starting from well-designed modelling, he/she will first establish a design architecture for the sensor and RF antenna. Once designed and sized, the post-doctoral associate will adapt existing transfer protocol of 2D materials to develop an innovative fabrication process for the sensor. He/she will then fabricate the first prototypes of the sensors. Consecutively he/she will validate first the remote addressing of the sensor via the RF antenna. Secondly he/she will lead biodétection tests to assess the sensitivity of the fabricated sensors. Finally, he/she will try to integrate Transition Metal Di-chalcogenides 2D materials (such as MoS2) to graphene sensors inside a hybrid 2D materials biological sensor. The goal here will be to boost operational sensitivity.
