Micro Sensors and Systems

Chair: MSS

Introduction

At MSS we specialize in transducers, we invent (micro-) fabrication processes and acquire fundamental understanding of underlying device physics. We demonstrate these on a variety of devices and develop the science of working principles and design, with the aim to transfer this knowledge to industry. We study biomimetic approaches to pave the road to new, well performing, robust and energy-efficient tranducers, next to cutting-edge MEMS-sensors and exploit nonlinear, parametric and stochastic phenomena to obtain extraordinary functionalities. We consider systems aspects and implement these where essential to show proof of principle of the devices.
