Smart systems integration: Development of self-powered electrochromic sensors

F. Javier del Campo
the National Microelectronics Centre (CSIC)

Electrochromic materials can tune their optical properties as a function of their electrochemical potential. This has made them very successful in the construction of displays and, particularly, so-called smart glass. However, their optoelectronic properties have been largely unexploited in electroanalysis, where they can contribute to simplifying the device construction and instrumentation requirements.

This talk illustrates the development of a self-powered electrochromic sensor, from its origin in the context of smart systems, towards the production of functional prototypes by screen-printing. The talk covers trends in smart systems integration, and highlights the important relation between materials, production processes, and device functionality.

F. Javier del Campo is currently a staff researcher at the National Microelectronics Centre (CSIC). Javier graduated in Chemistry from the UPV-EHU in 1999, and then completed a PhD in Electrochemistry at the University of Oxford, UK, under the supervision of Prof. Richard G. Compton. Following this, Javier joined Accentus plc., a subsidiary of AEA Technology based in Didcot, UK. At Accentus Javier participated in several contract R&D projects for a number of multinational companies and various government agencies developing large-scale electrochemical processes.
Since 2004, Javier has specialized in the miniaturization of electrochemical devices, involving various fabrication processes such as microfabrication, screen printing, and other conventional manufacturing techniques. In 2009 Javier set up the institute rapid prototyping lab, which is routinely used by most research groups in CNM.
Currently, Javier belongs to the Biomedical Applications Group, led by Dr. Rosa Villa. His work focuses on the development of electroanalytical devices (sensors and biosensors) for non-invasive monitoring in the field of clinical diagnosis, and in the development of novel Organ-on Chip technologies based on his experience in the areas of manufacturing and prototyping, miniaturization, and electrochemistry. Over the past 4 years, Javier’s research interests have focused in the analytical applications of electrochromic materials. This earned him a FBBVA Leonardo grant in 2016. To date, Javier has co-supervised 7 PhD theses as well as several undergraduate and masters’ theses. Since 1999, Javier has a record of over 100 publications (current h-index=29) , 8 patents, and is a regular referee for international journals such as Elelctrochemistry Communications, the Analyst, and Lab on a Chip, among others.
