Our main research focus is using micro- and nanotechnologies for devices and prosess technologies to the advance of electronic sensors, actuators and systems used in industrial instrumentation, environment control, health care, maritime and oil&gas applications; Examples are: Micro energy harvesters for wireless systems, micro energy storage devices, Micro/nano teatured electrode for bio-electrochemical systems, cryogenic optoelectronic packaging, non-invasive blood glucose sensors, carbon dioxide blood gas sensors, humidity sensors in buildings and terahertz imaging and spectroscopy.
The group contributes to teaching and supervision activities for the HSN bachelor-, master- and PhD programmes within micro- and nanotechnologies. The R&D projects in the group use in-house laboratory resources of the MST-Lab at HSN, the Norfab resources and laboratory resources at international partners. This means we can perform or have laboratory experiments performed with a wide range of advanced laboratory equipment, for prototype fabrication and for analysis.
