Welcome to The PHAN Research Group @ University of South Florida!

The Laboratory for Advanced Materials and Sensor Technologies (LAMST) was established in 2010 following the success of the State-funded Florida Cluster for Advanced Smart Sensor Technologies. 

The science and technology of sensors is a rapidly growing area of research that promises to fulfill the increasing demand for faster, cheaper, smaller, and more sensitive means to monitor the chemical, biological, and physical world around us. The technology of sensors that cuts across the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and engineering can have a global impact in many areas that include environmental cleanup, industrial process control, emissions monitoring, nonproliferation of weapons, screening for explosives and contraband, home and workplace safety, medical diagnosis and care, aeronautical and space systems, and planetary exploration.

The design, fabrication, and construction of smart structures which are suitable for a diversity of sensing applications present ultimate challenges in science and engineering today.  Fundamental understanding of how materials, the building blocks of sensors, respond to changes that are to be detected, and acquiring the know-how to develop practical devices that will ultimately benefit society are essential for making advances in sensor technology. LAMST is directed at research towards developing the next generation of smart sensor materials and devices.

Our laboratory locates on the 5th floor of the ISA building.
