Nanolab is an interdisciplinary research group at Tufts University led by Dr. Sameer Sonkusale.

At Nanolab, we are interested in answering the following questions: "How can micro- and nano-electronics benefit lifesciences and medicine?", "Can we build single-chip sensors and instruments on silicon CMOS", and "how do we explore emerging concepts (e.g. metamaterials, plasmonics) and novel materials (e.g. carbon nanotubes, graphene) for new and improved functions in our devices, circuits and sensors?".

Some current research focus areas in our group are:

  1. Nanoelectrochemical Systems on Silicon
  2. CMOS Image Sensors for Scientific Imaging
  3. CMOS-Nano Integration: CMOS For Nanoassembly and Nanofabrication
  4. Circuits and Systems for Wearable and Implantable Biomedical Microdevices
  5. Analog to Information Converters and Compressed Sensing Front Ends
  6. Asynchronous Analog and Mixed Signal Design
  7. Active Metamaterial Devices, Circuits and Systems
  8. Digitally Assisted Analog Design

Metamaterials for 2D Microplasmas to appear in Nature Scientific Reports

Pramod Singh's work on a remarkable utilization of metamaterials to generate a two dimensional array of microplasmas has been accepted to Scientific Reports by Nature publishing group. Congrats!

 

Jerry wins Joseph Noonan Outstanding Doctoral Research Prize

Jian Guo (aka Jerry) has been selected as the inagaural recipient of the Joseph Noonan Doctoral Research Prize. The prize recognizes outstanding research contributions made during doctoral studies in the department of electrical and computer engineering at Tufts University in the past three years. Jerry graduated in 2012 and is currently working for Apple in Cupertino CA. Congratulations Jerry!

 

Upcoming presentations in 2014

The work done by members of Nanolab will appear at several conferences/workshops this year. This includes two papers at ISCAS 2014 in Melbourne, where one paper is on translinear principle in time mode and the other is a record breaking 0.25V OTA. Then we have four presentations at the World Congress on Biosensors, also in Melbourne on sensors such as paper based sensors and optoelectronic sensors, and platform technologies such as for cell trapping and lysis, and on energy harvesting from gastric acid. Finally we are happy to say that the group will present three papers at Hilton Head Workshop in June, one on nanowire electrode arrays on paper substrate, another on optoelectronic sensor for early detection of cancer, and the third on multiparameter gas sensor that combines uGC column with nanomaterial sensor array.

 

Sam defends his PhD

Congrats to Sam MacNaughton for succesfully defending his PhD dissertation on "PROGRAMMABLE INTEGRATION OF HETEROGENEOUS NANOMATERIAL ARRAYS ONTO ARBITRARY SUBSTRATES WITH APPLICATIONS IN GAS SENSING" in Sep 2013. Sam finally bids adieu to Tufts after having spent all his academic career including bachelors, masters and doctoral degree at Tufts.  After graduation, he will be working for Sensata. We thank him for being a valuable member of the group particularly as a lab manager and wish him well in his career!
