Professor Agis A. Iliadis was invited to give an IEEE Distinguished Lecture on "Nanosensors for Critical Environments." This lecture took place on Thursday, November 18th, 2010, and was supported by the Ohio Chapter IEEE EDS with Case Western Reserve University and NASA Glenn Research Center.

The lecture featured discussion on the role of sensors in environmental, safety, and biomedical applications, and how the next generation requires higher responses and sensitivities. These new modifications will allow the sensors to be better applied in critical situations where early detection is necessary, such as toxic gas releases, emergency care environments, and explosive environments. The idea of optimal performance of sensors creates great potential for nanotechnology. Top-quality performing nanosensors were presented and discussed.

Iliadis is the Director of the Semiconductor Nanotechnology Research Laboratory and a member of the Maryland NanoCenter. He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering, from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics, University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology.
