Gas sensing technologies are undergoing a transformative evolution with the integration of nanomaterial composites, nanostructured architectures, and self-organization techniques. In this seminar, we will introduce new advancements in gas sensors, focusing on the strategic utilization of nanomaterial composites to elevate sensitivity and selectivity. By engineering innovative nanostructured materials, researchers are pushing the boundaries of traditional gas sensing capabilities. The talk will explore the synthesis methodologies, properties, and performance enhancements achieved by incorporating nanomaterial composites. Particular emphasis will be given to carbon nanotube polymeric composites and self-organization techniques that drive the development of highly efficient and selective gas sensors.


Brief CV

Dr. Carlos Eduardo Cava earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Material Science and Engineering from the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) in 2006 and 2012, respectively. He developed an experimental and theoretical study about Iron-Oxide-Filled Multi-wall Carbon Nanotubes applied as gas sensors. During his doctoral studies, he pursued advanced research under the mentorship of Prof. Lucimara S. Roman, with a research year at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, where he worked under the guidance of Prof. Clas Persson. Since 2013, he has worked as an Associate Professor at the Federal University of Technologic- Paraná, Brazil, Campus Lonrina.
Dr. Cava's current research interests lie at the intersection of nanomaterials, gas sensors, and solar cells.
