We would like to formally welcome A/Prof Jaime Garcia-Ruperez from the Universitat Politècnica de València, who is currently visiting the CNBP.
Hosted at CNBP’s University of Adelaide research node, one of Garcia-Ruperez’s first activities has been in providing a talk to the wider Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS).
His talk, “Novel approaches for the development of high-sensitivity, compact and low-cost nanophotonic biosensors based on photonic bandgap structures,” took place on May 14th to an appreciative crowd.
In the talk, Garcia-Ruperez presented the work being carried out at the Nanophotonics Technology Center (NTC) of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV, Spain) – particularly towards the development of high-sensitivity, compact, low-cost and real-time biosensors based on photonic bandgap structures where the use of tunable elements for their interrogation is avoided. The use of these sensing devices for their application in fields like medical diagnosis was also proposed.
