    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

  3. 3. Normal Metal Hot-Electron Microbolometer with Superconducting Andreev Mirrors

    Author : Denis Chouvaev; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns development of the Normal metal hot-electron microbolometer (NHEB). The NHEB is an antenna-coupled direct detector of sub-millimeter wave electromagnetic radiation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Heterogeneous material integration for MEMS

    Author : Fredrik Forsberg; Frank Niklaus; Lina Sarro; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis describes heterogeneous integration methods for the fabrication of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Most MEMS devices reuse the fabrication techniques that are found in the microelectronics integrated circuit industry. This limits the selection of materials and processes that are feasible for the realization of MEMS devices. READ MORE
