Sensor and Actuator Systems

Thor Balkhed

Modern transduction systems entail a variety of highly specialized functions reaching across multiple disciplines. Such systems are the result of the harmonic integration of complementary expertise, from material sciences and device physics to actuation and autonomous data mining.

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:
