The NATO Advanced Study Institute on Sensors for Environment, Health and Security: Advanced Materials and Techlogy was held in Vichy (France) on September 16-27, 2007 where more than 65 participants, ranging from Ph. D. students to experienced senior scientists, met and exchanged ideas and kw-how in a friendly atmosphere. The present book intends to cover the main topics of this NATO ASI through 32 chapters distributed over two parts (Part I: Materials and Techlogies and Part II: Applications to Environment, Health and Security ). The scientific programme of the NATO ASI consisted in 28 1-hour lectures given by 14 invited lecturers, 5 additional 1-hour lectures given by seminar speakers, 22 oral presentations by selected ASI participants and a poster session. The programme was divided into four sessions: (1) Advanced materials and techlogies; (2) Sensors for environment; (3) Sensors for health; (4) Sensors for security. During the Advanced Materials and Techlogies session (Part I of the present book), the lectures were dedicated to critical analyses of current methods for the synthesis of materials, namaterials (naparticles, nawires, natubes, ...) and nacomposites to be used for the fabrication of sensing devices, mainly semiconductor sensors. Among the synthesis methods, chemical (sol-gel, etc. ) and physical methods (laser deposition, DC magnetron sputtering, etc. ) were discussed. Several lectures addressed characterization techniques and it was concluded that the physical and chemical control of the materials/namaterials, including surface chemistry, remains a key issue for the reproducibility of the final device.
