Under the slogan “Microsensors for the world of tomorrow”, the CiS Research Institute will present current development results from the MOEMS business unit at the leading international trade fair for the supplier market of medical products. This year, the Compamed in Düsseldorf from 15.11.-18.11.2021 will again take place as a presence event.
As part of the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH Forum by IVAM, Dr. Martin Schädel, Business Unit Manager MOEMS at the CiS Research Institute, will talk about “Optical Blood Pressure Monitoring with PPG Sensors” in the session “Smart Sensor Solutions” on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, at 11:00 AM. The developed sensor can be worn in the ear, which provides numerous physiological benefits for signal quality and stability, as well as everyday comfort. In addition to blood pressure, numerous other vital signs such as heart rate, heart rate variability and blood oxygen saturation can be recorded. More than 20 years of research have gone into the development of the multiple award-winning sensors, which are now being transferred into medical products and commercial sensor solutions as part of ongoing transfer projects. You can also follow this event via live stream.
The development of silicon-based devices for applications in industry, medicine and the environment is one of the core competencies of the CiS Research Institute. In hall 13 at booth E 47.4 the CiS Research Institute presents further highlights of its developments. The spectrum ranges from UV to NDIR and IR components.
For UV LEDs, various LED packaging and monitoring as well as assembly technologies have been developed through simulation-based system optimization within the BMBF-funded project “Advanced UV for Life”. Dose and heat generation can already be dimensioned and optimized on the computer and form a building block for high-quality UV-LED modules and illumination units, e.g. for the disinfection of surfaces, skin and other media.
Infrared light is a carrier of numerous information: On the one hand, the thermal emission of surfaces can be used for non-contact temperature measurement. On the other hand, the composition and concentration measurement of different substances and mixtures can be detected by the material-specific spectral light absorption. The CiS Research Institute focuses on the development and production of silicon components and innovative solutions for their assembly and housing. The subsequent development of gas sensors and temperature measurement devices is carried out by industrial partners.
