|PREPARATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF METAL OXIDES NANOSTRUCTURES FOR CHEMICAL SENSORS APPLICATIONS
Nowadays, the rapid development of nanoscience and nanotechnology has greatly pushed the scientific community and industrial companies to explore new features of both typical and novel materials at the nanoscale level. Elaborating or structuring materials at the nanoscale open new possible applications such as chemical sensors and gas sensors in particular. Due to their low cost production, their possibility of miniaturization and their good sensitivity, metal oxides gas sensors are the object of particular attention. Our project aims to produce a chemical gas sensor based on metal oxides nanostructures with high sensing characteristics such as high sensitivity, high sensing speed, good stability and good selectivity.
Abderrahim Moumen was born in 1991 in Casablanca- Morocco. He is a PhD student at the SENSOR Laboratory, Department of Information Engineering, Brescia University.
He graduated in physics – fondamental & applied physics curriculum in 2013 at University of Hassan II- Casablanca. In 2015 he obtained the master in physics and chemistry of materials and nanomaterials. His master thesis entitled “preparation and characterization of CuO thin films for gas sensing applications” made at faculty of sciences and technology – Mohamedia- Morocco, and it was there where continuing his research after the master period.
In November 2017, he started his PhD at Sensor Laboratory, Brescia University supervised by Prof. Elisabetta Comini. His PhD research activities are mainly focused on the preparation and characterization of Metal Oxides (MOXs) nanostructures for chemical sensors applications.
