Sensor and Actuator Systems (SAS)

Sensor and Actuator Systems (SAS) conducts multidisciplinary research on all areas of transduction sciences from materials for sensors, and systems integration to cell free synthetic biology lab-on-a-chip detection and soft robots.

The research division also hosts the fabrication expertise and facilities, supporting all areas of our research including classical device microfabrication and modern fast prototyping of microfluidics and optics.

We are a horizontal association of scientists contributing to the progress of our field and providing innovative solutions for industry and society.

Sensor and Actuator Systems includes approximately 30 scientists and students divided into five research units:

Electronic nose may help in court

Today, cadaver dogs are used to find human remains, for instance after a murder or a natural disaster. But as this practice faces both legal and ethical problems, researchers at LiU are developing an electronic nose as a complement the search dogs.

Doctoral network for “textile muscles” receives EU grant

Edwin Jager is the coordinator for a doctoral network that has been granted almost SEK 29 million from Horizon Europe. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the PhD students are learning how to develop material that can work as “textile muscles”.
