For the 3rd time, the research institute located in the southeast of the city of Erfurt is participating in the Erfurt Science Night. On November 8, 2013, scientists and engineers will present their research areas in a vivid way. The CiS will give an insight into microscopic things that are used as sensors in many areas

To detect the need for accommodation, the so-called pupil near reflex must be measured. For this purpose, the CiS Research Institute is currently developing an optical sensor system that measures the pupil diameter and simultaneously the total brightness. From these signals, input control variables for the actuator-operated lens system are derived
The measurement of vital parameters in the field of health and sports has been common practice for many years. The development of patient-friendly, body-oriented sensor solutions for prevention, medical diagnostics and therapy are the focus of current R&D projects at the CiS Research Institute in Erfurt, Germany
The CiS Research Institute presents the concept of the OM 100 photon detector family at COMPAMED 2013. The core element is an energy-saving PIN photoreceiver that is independent of the ambient temperature and is used instead of an expensive and overload-sensitive photomultiplier
Close observation of the cardiovascular system can provide insights that can improve diagnostics and therapy. For the investigation of vascular dysregulation, the CiS Research Institute together with aviant GmbH from Jena developed a multisensory solution that can record ECG and photoplethysmographic parameters time-synchronously
The developed sensor contains four channels, each with an excitation LED, optical filters and detectors for measuring light transmission and fluorescence. The channels are designed to cover a wide range of the visible spectrum and can therefore be used for the detection of many different substances
The basis of the biofeedback system is the analysis of vital parameters measured in the external auditory canal. Sensors determine the optical density of the rhythmically perfused tissue. This allows conclusions to be drawn about local blood flow and the systems regulating blood flow. These include, above all, cardiac activity, respiration and thermoregulation, which in turn are under the influence of the autonomic nervous system
The search for the Higgs boson is one of the most important tasks of the world’s largest particle accelerator, the LHC, which went into operation in 2008. This is because the Higgs boson was considered the last piece of the puzzle in the established Standard Model of particle physics. When the Higgs boson was discovered at CERN, detectors from the CiS Research Institute were also involved. These radiation detectors are robust enough to withstand the extreme radiation loads in the immediate vicinity of the collision point (4-20 cm), i.e. inside the detection instruments
“Advanced UV for Life” – this is the name of the consortium that will open up innovative applications of UV light in medicine, water treatment, production technology and sensor technology in the future. The interdisciplinary consortium of 8 research institutions and 14 industrial companies is one of the 10 winners in the Twenty20 competition, which is part of the high-tech strategy of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). This was announced by Federal Minister Johanna Wanka at a press conference
Four young researchers from Nordhausen, Dresden, Ilmenau and Berlin are pleased to receive the Silicon Science Award this year. This award recognizes outstanding work in the fields of sensor technology and photovoltaics, preferably done in conjunction with industry
