Development of MEMS-based gas sensors and gas sensing systems. Design and characterization of micromachined components for analytical chemistry and lab-on-chip devices: packed and capillary MEMS GC columns, detectors, injectors and pre-concentrators. Miniaturized and application-specific microfluidic circuits for chemical analyses.
Applications include environmental monitoring, safety&security, agrofood and industrial monitoring.
Technology transfer towards SME and Industry. Head of the Electronics department of IMM Bologna and of the IMM application area "Multifunctional Micro/Nanosystems".
Stefano Zampolli graduated in Physics at the University of Bologna in 2000, discussing a thesis on the application of Fuzzy Logic for detection of buried landmines. At CNR IMM Bologna since 2000, he works primarily on gas sensor characterization and data processing within the sensor and microsystem R&D program. Since 2005 he is Researcher in the sensors and microsystem group at CNR-IMM, designing and developing gas sensors and gas sensing Microsystems.
