Representative of the TMWWDG visits the CiS Forschungsinstitut

State Secretary for Science and Higher Education Carsten Feller and Robert Fetter, acting head of the "Technology Promotion" unit, met yesterday afternoon with the management of the CiS Forschungsinstitut at its south-east Erfurt location [learn more]

Differential pressure sensors for use in aggressive media

Simultaneous measurement of differential pressure and process pressure - The approach pursued by CiS uses miniaturised pressure sensors which can be applied to carrier materials such as silicon or ceramics by means of flip-chip technologies. By means of adapted passivation processes (ALD, Parylene, etc.), the pressure sensors are available in a media-resistant design [learn more]

MOEMS Workshop on NDIR sensor technology successful in 2nd edition

Yesterday, the workshop autum at CiS was continued in an exciting way with the workshop on "Components of NDIR sensor technology" which is already in its second edition. Designed as a hybrid presence and online event, more than 40 experts from research and industry discussed specific infrared sensor development for the analysis of liquid and gaseous substances [learn more]

Disinfection with short-wave LED light in the UVC or blue wavelength range

Based on innovative assembly and interconnection technologies, CiS is responsible for the development of assembly processes for UV LEDs within the consortium "Advanced UV for Life". Combined with the know-how of other partners in the consortium, solutions for disinfection with UV-LEDs are realised [learn more]

CiS Workshop Trilogy started

With the Workshop on Quantum Technologies the exciting workshop autumn CiS began. The two-day hybrid event offered current research results from the fields of quantum sensor technology, quantum communication and computing as well as enabling technologies. Workshops on NDIR sensor technology and pressure sensor technology will follow every two weeks [learn more]

CiS team wins a tree by bicycling

Also this year, a committed team of the CiS Forschungsinstitut participated in the "City Cycling" campaign. The aim of the competition is to cover as many everyday distances as possible by bicycle in a climate-friendly way. From September 10 to 30, the 13-member team covered more than 1,500 kilometers by bicycle and thus won a tree [learn more]

Cooperation with Ilmsens GmbH - Technology competition getstarted2gether

After a successful pitch in yesterday's technology competition getstarted2gether, Hans-Christian Fritsch, Managing Director of Ilmsens GmbH, and Thomas Brock, Managing Director of the CiS Forschungsinstitut, today signed a letter of intent to further develop the founding project "Ultra-wideband microwave sensor technology [learn more]

Intelligent development environment for flexible and fast microsensor prototyping

With the support of the European Union within the framework of the European Regional Development Fund (EFRE), the CiS Forschungsinstitut is establishing an intelligent development environment for flexible and fast microsensor prototyping that enables permanent, largely automated parameter acquisition and control in the course of microsystem prototype production [Show info]

Supported by the Free State of Thuringia with funds from the European Social Fund

Supported by the European Social Fund, CiS is preparing to modernise its infrastructure in order to be fit for future research and development activities [show info]
