The need of effective portable chemical detectors and deployment of remote sensing platforms is continuously growing either for civil, industrial and security applications, in particular for the detection and diagnosis of CBRN substances. Nanotechnology enables today the development of innovative chemical sensors with enhanced sensing capabilities, improved selectivity and sensitivity, and higher reliability. The main goal of the project to prepare an innovative electro-optical chemical nano-sensor, never tried so far, that combines two different transduction principles on a single device: i) one conventional conductometric MOX sensor and ii) an optical sensor based on Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) effect excited in the MOX nanostructures.
