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.
