Journal Article
La Spada, L., Bilotti, F., & Vegni, L. (2011)
Metamaterial-based Sensor Design Working in Infrared Frequency Range. Progress in electromagnetics research B. Pier B, 34, 205-223. doi:10.2528/pierb11060303
In this paper, we propose the design of high sensitivity and selectivity metamaterial-based biosensors operating in the THz regime. The proposed sensors consist of planar arra...

A mechanism to promote social behaviour in household load balancing

Conference Proceeding
Brooks, N. A., Powers, S. T., & Borg, J. M. (2020)
A mechanism to promote social behaviour in household load balancing. In Proceedings of the Artificial Life Conference 2020 (ALIFE 2020). , (95-103). https://doi.org/10.1162/isal_a_00290
Reducing the peak energy consumption of households is essential for the effective use of renewable energy sources, in order to ensure that as much household demand as possible...

Double CSRR for water content detection in biological matter

Conference Proceeding
La Spada, L., Bilotti, F., & Vegni, L. (2011)
Double CSRR for water content detection in biological matter. In 4th EOS Topical Meeting on Optical Microsystems (OµS’11)
In this study, a low-cost, compact, and high-performing metamaterial-based biosensor operating in the THz frequency range is presented. The sensor is designed to detect the pr...

Metamaterial-based design of biological sensors operating at THz frequencies

Conference Proceeding
La Spada, L., Bilotti, F., & Vegni, L. (2011)
Metamaterial-based design of biological sensors operating at THz frequencies
In this contribution, we present an omega-shaped electromagnetic resonator, which is of potential interest for THz biosensors. A new analytical model for such an inclusion-typ...
