Research and development from design to prototyping

We are your partner for product oriented research and development of new sensor solutions and microsystems based on silicon technologies. Customers benefit from our closed value chain from design to production. We focus on mechanic optoelectronic and capacitive microsystems for industrial application and radiation detectors for science and research.

Happy new year!

... the New Year begins no less turbulent! We start highly motivated and with you we want to master the challenges that are set.
Together we are looking forward to a time that makes personal encounters possible again.
For the New Year we wish you all the best, business success - and stay healthy.


PassDru - Long-term stable passivation of piezoresistive sensors for demanding sensor environments

Direct contact with the medium is difficult to implement for silicon-based microsensors. In order to fully exploit miniaturisation, corrosion protection is applied at chip level. This makes an application in more demanding environments possible even without additional protective constructions. [learn more]

Silicon detector for electrons with energies of 1 keV

Increasing the quantum efficiency of silicon diodes in scanning electron microscopes - The SiekeV research project is working on improving scanning electron microscopes for analysing near-surface structures. The detection of low-energy electrons makes it possible to take very surface-sensitive SEM images [learn more]

Efficient coupling optics for single photon detectors (EkoPHo)

A new technology platform is used for targeted optical adaptation of an SNSPD silicon chip stack. This is an extremely compact construction of a superconducting detector with efficient signal coupling in a chip compound as well as integrated optics and mounting of a fibre [learn more]

SiCer technology for high performance sensor systems

At  InnoCON Thuringia on 24th November 2020, Dr. Olaf Brodersen will explain the latest results of the growth core HIPs and the SiCer technologies to be developed therein for high performance sensor systems. The InnoCON starts as online event at 15:00 o'clock [learn more]

Valuable seconds - continuously monitor blood pressure with optical sensors

The CiS Forschungsinstitut has been working for more than 10 years on the development of photoplethysmographic sensors for the continuous measurement of vital parameters such as heart rate, heart rate variability and blood oxygen saturation. The most recent result is a miniaturised sensor that also monitors blood pressure in the ear [learn more]

10th Advisory Board Meeting of the AUVL Consortium

The 10th advisory board meeting of the Advanced UV for Life (AUVL) consortium is taking place today as an online event. The CiS Research Institute is the coordinator of the working field "Modules & Measurement Technology". Prof. Thomas Ortlepp will give a lecture from 11:45 am to 12:20 pm about the value creation and supply chains within the field of work [learn more]

Patent application for multilayer structures for chemically resistant, long-term stable differential pressure sensors

Harsh environmental conditions require robust and stable pressure sensors. The new and further development of wafer-level packaging technologies increases performance, extends areas of application and reduces manufacturing costs. The result is patent pending [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]
