Metamaterials for Advanced Sensing Platforms
The work is focused on the use of metamaterial as sensors. The interaction of the electromagnetic wave with planar (meta-surface), 3D (nano-) and near-zero structures will be studied and the related (sensitivity and selectivity) enhancement effects analyzed. It will allow us to use them as advanced sensing devices for diagnostic applications. To this regard, specific geometries will be proposed for cancer detection, biological tissue characterization and chemical analysis (i.e. glucose concentration measurements and blood diseases monitoring).
