Applied Sensor Science

The Applied Sensor Science unit has their research focus on the detection of gaseous, liquid or biological analytes with tailored sensors for various applications.

We are an international group of scientists with multidisciplinary backgrounds in physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, and engineering. Our areas of expertise include sensors, materials for sensing and sensor system integration including the use of 3D-printing technology. Our main research focus is on sensors for different applications spanning from indoor air quality control, ambient monitoring, emission control and preventive conservation of cultural heritage materials to bio-analytical sensing and diagnostic tools, food quality and safety, and sustainable development. We work closely together with several collaborators within both academia and industry at local, national and international levels.
