Om boka

This book aims to present the different aspects of electrospinning for designing and fabricating high performing materials for sensors applied in gaseous and liquid environments. Since electrospinning is a versatile and inexpensive manufacturing technology, the book emphasizes the industrial applications perspective. The volume is an edited collection of the most recent and encouraging results concerning advanced nanostructured (bio) sensors. The feats achieved by these sensors range from high sensitivity to extreme operating conditions and satisfy a wide range of requirements. Most of the contributions in this book come from First International Workshop on Electrospinning for High Performance Sensing (EHPS2014) that was held in Rome in 2014, as part of the European COST Action MP1206 Electrospun Nanofibres for bio inspired composite materials and innovative industrial applications.

Om forfatteren

Antonella Macagnano, is a research scientist at the National Research Council (2001-, CNR). She started her activity at the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM-Rome, Italy) until 2013 when she moved to the Institute of Atmospheric Pollutant Research (IIA) where she has been leading an action called "High-Performance Sensors and Sensing Systems for Monitoring Air Quality and Environment". She devoted most of her research activity to design and develop sensors and sensor arrays, with different principles of transduction, based on biomimetics and bioinspired artificial sensing membranes. She received the Biological Science's Degree in 1993 at Lecce University and the Professional's Degree in 1994. Since 1996 she has been cooperating with many National and International Institutions for designing and studying novel sensors (gravimetric, conductive, capacitive) and sensing strategies for environmental and biomedical applications, within several projects (among them, seven as a leader). She has also been involved in studying and developing novel and integrated systems to detect organic substances and dusts in space explorations. More recently, she has been focusing on the sensing performances of organics, inorganics and composite nanofibers obtained through the implementation of the electrospinning technology. She is member of the European COST Action (MP1206), which is aiming to create a European multidisciplinary knowledge platform on electrospinning of nanofibres to facilitate their rapid development and applications. She is author of several international papers on the topic, book contributions as well as talks and invited talks in international me
