The primary objective of this proposal is to carry the results, knowledge, and international collaboration gained throughout our first project (NANOBIOSOENS) that was conducted as a part of IRSES call in the last 3 years to the next level, which will focus on nanodevices and advanced applications. The proposed research project is focused on two different applications, main one being on biosensors and bioelectronics and the other one on potential solar energy science. The results obtained during NANOBIOSENS were very promising opening interesting possibilities to more detailed investigations, which produced around 25 publications with around 50 conference presentations. At the end of the NANOBIOSENS project, our success was published in the PROJECTS magazine as “Biosensors Received the Nanotreatment”. The obtained results along with the synergy formed among these 6 international partners motivated us to carry our research to a more advanced level. With this motivation, the objective of the currently proposed project is to test the synthesized and integrated nanomaterials in two of the most appealing applications that are “biosystems and solar energy”. This had been the motivation for this group to continue the researcher and knowledge exchanges for the above mentioned higher level of scientific objective that is hoped to be achieved throughout the proposed NANODEV project. In terms of participants, there will be two main distinctions of NANODEV with respect to the NANOBIOSENS project. The first one is our new partner who joined us from CHINA and is an expert in the field of nanomaterial synthesis, design of new bioactive compounds, and biosensor development. The second distinction is the newly built research center at METU, Center for Solar Energy Research and Applications. With these two additional assets, it will be possible in NANODEV to test the jointly made nanomaterial integrated compounds in two different fields of applications.
