Electronic Devices: Application of Metal-Organic Frameworks

By | Electronics, Energy Storage, Semiconductors | No Comments

Material components of electronics are a fundamental part of the manufacturing of small devices. The miniaturization trend in electronic devices extends to the point of molecular-scale functionality in the nanometer scale. To stay in this road manufacturers require materials that can also be an integral part of the device, having several functions. Read More

Metal-Organic Framework: a versatile platform for sensing technology

By | Cleanrooms, Semiconductors, Sensing Application | No Comments
The detection of compounds with sensors has broad applications, from common ones like the blood glucose sensor (for diabetes control) to the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to monitor air quality in the industrial work environment. In the sensing technology, the desirable characteristics in a sensor are high sensitivity, selectivity, quick response time, stability, reusability, and low cost. In most cases, existing technology is limited by their detection limit or low reliability, to improve these features the necessity of new materials has increased the research in this area in the last decades. This blog is dedicated to describing a new class of materials, Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs), which have shown promising results on different sensor applications.
