Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT)
Area of research:
Accurate pressure sensors are much needed in the Vacuum Industry (Food industry, semiconductor industry). A wireless compact sensor combining the Pirani principle and Surface Acoustic Waves has been designed and simulated.
This sensor prevents leakage due to wires and can be operated easily thanks to its portability.
A prototype using microfabrication technology is being finalized.
This work is part of the Marie Curie research project MIGRATE and aims to engage a motivated student in the experimental validation and optimization of the prototype. This work is part of the development of a new product that will be commercialized.
The work includes:Pressure measurements with the sensor varying different parametersCalibration of the sensorOptimisation of the wireless power transfer of the sensor
