Group leader: Ingo Klimant

The Sensor Materials group is dedicated to development of new sensing schemes and spectroscopic methods, including the synthesis of tailor-made indicators, receptors and polymeric sensor materials. Research on sensors materials for determination of oxygen, pH, carbon dioxide and glucose are in the main focus of the Sensor Materials group.

Group leader: Torsten Mayr

The Applied Sensor group is dedicated to the application of new sensor technologies in biotechnology and environmental analyses. Further research activities include the integration of organic (plastic) optoelectronic components (OLED and photodiodes) and optical sensors in miniaturised devices.
