Presentation Summary

In this contribution we report on the design, realisation and characterization of novel active partly printed gas sensor and IR detectors. In particular we will present
  • a novel concept of an integrated optical oxygen probe, which is realised using a OLED device
  • a novel concept of a sub ppm ammoniac detector by means of a printed conducting polymer resistor
  • a novel concept of a printed IR detector utilising different inorganic nanoparticles.

Speaker Biography (Emil List)
