Tutorial Programme – Monday July 23rd 2018

All tutorials will take place in room B.0.17 at Tyndall National Institute

11:00 – Nanoelectrochemistry: Simulations, device fabrication and applications
(Prof. Paul Bohn, Dr. James Rohan, Dr. Alan O’Riordan)

This tutorial will describe:

  • Use of simulations for nanoelectrochemical sensor device design and architecture definition.
  • Device fabrication, post-processing and interfacing.
  • Comparison of simulations to experimental results for sensing applications in security, agri-tech, food and environmental analysis.

12:30 – Break
(lunch available onsite in Lee Maltings Restaurant at own cost)

14:00 – Electronic Circuit Interfaces for Electrochemical Sensors
(Dr. Daniel O’Hare, Aidan Murphy, Kathy Hanley, Dr. Ivan O’Connell)

Sensors measure physical parameters – pressure, temperature, speed, orientation, pH, concentration, source resistance, etc – and transduce currents or voltages from them. Software Application (App) designers read time-varying numbers and apply numerical operations to them to deduce information. In terms of parameters and terminology these two environments are worlds apart.

Electronic Engineers design the interface between these two worlds. In this tutorial, the key terminology and specifications for interface circuits – voltage; current; noise; Dynamic Range etc. – will be explained. Basic electronic interface circuits will be introduced. A case study of the derived specification for a readout circuit for Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) measurements using a nanowire sensor will be presented.

15:45 – Tour of Tyndall
