Sensors are indispensable for the control and optimal operation of processes, also in the context of industry 4.0 and increasing digitalization. The Fraunhofer IGB functionalizes surfaces for gas and liquid sensors to detect environmental gases (NOx, SO2), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or other molecules that are difficult to measure and are produced in production or combustion processes. To this end, polymers, ionic liquids or organometallic framework structures are equipped with specific functions for binding the molecules in demand, integrated into existing sensor platforms and tested in gas measuring stations under controllable conditions.
To an increasing extent innovative products are finished with a tailor-made surface design, for which the processes and surface composition have to be controlled ...
To provide surfaces with new properties, Fraunhofer IGB especially applies plasma treatment technology. This way, we are able to etch surfaces, e.g. to clean them, ...
