IROAST will have the 93rd IROAST Seminar by Associate Professor Dario Zappa, The University of Brescia, Italy, as follows.
Anyone interested in this seminar is more than welcome. Registration is not required.
We hope to see you at the seminar.

  1. Date and time: March 1 (Wed), 2023, 16:00-17:00
  2. Venue: Conference Room, 2F  Kurokami South W4 (Faculty of Engineering Research Bldg. II)
  3. Speaker & Title:
    Associate Professor Dario Zappa, The University of Brescia, Italy
    “Metal oxide nanostructures as building blocks for energy and environmental applications”
  4. Abstract:
       Metal oxides represent a vast class of materials of interest for various scientific communities, ranging from physics to chemistry, from material science to engineering. The advances of nanotechnology not only open new possibilities for the use of these materials, but also improve dramatically the performance of existing ones. Nowadays, environmental monitoring is getting more and more essential due to the continuous rise in human activities especially in the direction of industrial and technological developments. At the same time, clean hydrogen produced by renewable energy is getting extremely popular as an alternative energy vector to fossil fuels. The lecture will present examples of metal oxides nanostructures (nanowires, nanotubes, surface functionalized nanowires and heterostructures), exploiting their potential use as chemical sensors and for the fabrication of solid oxide fuel cells. Different growth and characterization techniques will be discussed, tuning the properties of the materials with the specific application. Moreover, several strategies to improve sensitivity and selectivity of metal oxide chemical sensors will be discussed.
