Abstract Title: A nanotechnology approach for the realisation of a novel generation of miniature and portable analytical instruments

Abstract: The combination of recent developments in the field of micro- and nanotechnologies (MEMS and NEMS) with technologies for chemical analysis and fluid dynamic measurements could change fundamentally the manner in which these measurements could be performed.

In particular, leveraging on these smart combinations and creating specific synergies, NanoTech Analysis could give origin to an innovative generation of proprietary instruments for pressure and chemical measures employing MEMS and NEMS developments to bring the measurements to the level of miniaturization and being able to achieve technological and competitive advantages towards ultra-simplified instruments as well.

In this context, extremely relevant would appear the impact of our technology (and of the relative potential products above all in the field of miniature and portable multi gas analyzer) when applied in domains as Defense and homeland security, Aerospace, automotive fields, environmental and some bio medical applications.

In fact, the underlying idea is to challenge in the smartest way the MEMS and NEMS Semiconductors Industry to realize complex Electro Mechanical Analogical devices and instrumentations.

Therefore, smart miniaturization could become an enabling factor to definitively allow unmet devices’ performances, simplify potential OEM systems, optimize operations, allow unpredictable potential integration into several different domains and applications.
