Sensors Day 2017

The third Sensors Day conference took place at Robinson College in Cambridge on 20 October 2017.

As always, this conference brought together speakers from a range of sensing disciplines (see full programme here). Allard Mosk, Marina Kuimova, Tuomas Knowles and Ljiljana Fruk presented captivating talks on

  • optical spectroscopy at the nanoscale to further the understanding of 3D materials
  • the use of molecular rotors to image viscosity inside lipid layers, cells and aerosols
  • employing microfluidics and sensors to understand protein misfolding
  • using bio-nano composite materials for drug delivery, sensors
