    Abstract : Gas detection is crucial in a wide range of fields and applications, such as safety and process control in the industry, atmospheric sciences, and breath diagnostics. Optical gas sensing offers some key advantages, compared to other sensing methods such as electrochemical and semiconductor sensing: high specificity, fast response, and minimal drift. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microfluidics at High Pressures : Understanding, Sensing, and Control

    Author : Martin Andersson; Lena Klintberg; Cyril Aymonier; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; High-pressure microfluidics; supercritical CO2; compressible flow; relative permittivity; integrated electrodes; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrosystemteknik; Engineering Science with specialization in Microsystems Technology;

    Abstract : This thesis explores understanding, sensing, and control in high-pressure microfluidics. The high-pressure regime allows fluids to be forced through narrow channels at substantial speed and creates conditions for fluids of high density and low viscosity—features desired in flow-based chemical analyses.

  3. 3. High performance breath alcohol analysis

    Author : Jonas Ljungblad; Mikael Ekström; Olof Lindahl; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; elektronik; Electronics;

    Abstract : Alcohol breath testing on a larger scale will save lives. Alcohol intake affects the human body by significantly longer response time to external stimuli. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards Unconventional Applications of Wire Bonding

    Author : Stephan Schröder; Frank Niklaus; Michael Mayer; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Micro-electromechanical systems MEMS ; heterogeneous 3D integration; wire bonding; wire integration; transfer wafer bonding; nondispersive infrared gas sensing; low-stress packaging; shape memory alloy SMA ; infrared IR emitter; through silicon via TSV ; ethanol sensing; nitric oxide gas sensing; wafer-level; chip-level; Kanthal; nickel chromium NiCr ; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents novel heterogeneous integration approaches of wire materials to fabricated and package MEMS devices by exploring unconventional applications of wire bonding technology. Wire bonding, traditionally endemic in the realm of device packaging to establish electrical die-to-package interconnections, is an attractive back-end technology, offering promising features, such as high throughput, flexibility and placement accuracy.
