Dr. Krzysztof Zaraska
Mr Krzysztof Zaraska (PI, WP leader), PhD graduated from AGH University of Science and Technology (AGH-UST), Poland in 2004, with a degree in Electronics, and has since been employed at ITE. He has obtained his PhD degree in 2018, also from AGH-UST. Since 2009 he has been focusing on the management of national and international research projects. He was a project manager during the SENSEIVER project), where his responsibilities included ESR recruitment, financial management, procurement, financial and technical reporting, travel and meeting organization and commercialization of developed IP.
RP1: pH, DO, conductivity and temperature sensors (ESR1, ITE)
Appropriate pH and sufficient DO are necessary in high quality water and aqua food environment. The values of pH, DO, temperature, and conductivity are the most important indicators, and these can be linked to each other. For example, the DO content of water is controlled by the salinity (in turn influence of conductivity), temperature and the rates of oxygen accumulation/consumption. Due to the high important of these parameters, it is necessary to fabricate the sensors on a single platform to cross-check the performance. The sensing performance and selectivity of the sensors are strongly related to the materials used to develop the sensors. Hence, the ESR1 will investigate new nanostructured materials and carry out theoretical and experimental studies. The potentiometric pH and DO sensors will be integrated with resistive temperature and conductivity sensors and will be fabricated by screen printing.
