​MAIN RESEARCH AREAS                                                                                  

Currently, there are three main streams for this research group (will expand in the future):
  • Designing the IS for bio-medical applications.
  • Micro/Nanomaterial for fabricating the IS.
  • Estimation and filtering for the measurement signal.
    
SPECIFIC LINES OF RESEARCH PRIORITY OF THE GROUP                                 

  1. Develop new bio-micro/nano IS to measure human body responses.
  2. Derive correlations between newly developed micro/nanomaterials and human dynamic responses.
  3. Examine, and if needed develop, new materials that be safe and fast.
  4. Apply/develop signal processing and estimation techniques to maximize the data obtained from the IS.  
  5. Obtain a product that can be used nationally and internationally.
