WorkPackage Leader of WP3. Beneficiary in WP1, WP4, WP5, WP6, WP7.
The Laboratory of Advanced Electronic Devices (DEALAB) at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Cagliari, lead by Prof. A. Bonfiglio, is the research unit involved in I-FLEXIS. The group of Prof. Bonfiglio has an established expertise in electronic devices based on organic semiconductors. In particular, field-effect thin-film devices are designed, fabricated and characterized at DEALAB. The main interest is the fabrication of devices with different geometries and materials combination and the investigation of the device physics with a focus on the role of the device structure on the observed electrical properties. Most recent achievements include the development of an Ultra-low Voltage organic transistor, able to work with voltages less than 2 V. This basic structure has been employed as a basis for developing a chemo-sensor with unprecedented performances in terms of sensitivity in the detection of DNA hybridization with organic devices. The lab is equipped with the main device fabrication and characterization tools: thermal evaporation unit for metal and organic semiconductors, photolithography facility, spin coaters, ink-jet printer for organic and hybrid inks, Glove Box for measurements in Nitrogen atmosphere, 1 Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer, several source-measurement for electrical characterization, 1 C-V meter. By means of these tools the group could significantly contribute to the realization and characterization of electronic devices of new conception. The group presently consists of 9 members (2 permanent, 5 PhD students, 2 postdocs), not counting bachelor/master students.

graduated in Physics in 1991 at the University of Genoa. She obtained a Ph.D. in Bioengineering in 1996 at the Politecnico of Milano and she is Associate Professor in Electronics at the University of Cagliari since 2003. Her research interests are focussed on organic semiconductor based field effect devices, in particular transistors and sensors and Charge modulation sensors for chemo- and bio-detection. In the last 5 years, she contributed to several projects (regional, Italian and international) and in addition has coordinated two EU projects (FET 2002 ARIANNE and IP 2006 PROETEX)

graduated in Electronic Engineering in 1997 at the University of Cagliari. He obtained a Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science in 2001 at the University of Cagliari and he is Assistant Professor in Electronics at the University of Cagliari since 2002. His research interests are focussed on analog microelectronics, in particular smart image sensors and biosensors for applications in genetics and proteomics.
