Daily Exchange – Posting

Laurier researcher Vladimir Kitaev is contributing to the synthesis and exploration of a new generation of materials that enable sensors to be smaller, smarter and more sensitive.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.exchangemagazine.com

As an expert in nanoparticles, Kitaev explores nanoscale building blocks to allow for customization of new advanced materials through the manipulation of nanocomposite structure. One of the important directions he will pursue is the exploitation of beneficial properties of these new materials, specifically focusing on their uses in improving the sensitivity of optical devices and sensors and also detecting and removing contaminants from water. These sensors can be used in medical devices or in devices that automatically determine minute quantities of different compounds on a surface through sensitive optical detection.
