A key for quantum technology: sensors based on synthetic diamonds

Synthetic diamonds receive additional functionalities due to specific structural defects, which makes them react to magnetic fields or temperature changes, for example. Color centers are responsible for this, such as the nitrogen vacancy center (NV center). These NV-centers can be optically excited and read out and are therefore suitable as sensitive elements in sensors.

IVAM members vs. CORONA

Microtechnology is one key enabler to get a grip of the Corona crisis: It enables medical devices to be more smart and compact and is qualified to make diagnostic methods better, more precise and much faster as before. Furthermore it opens up the possibility of transforming existing processes, components and systems at lightning speed so that completely new fields of application can be created in the fight against the virus.

Innovative sensors for diagnostics and monitoring applications

Sensor technology is one of the key technologies when it comes to making conventional medical devices or production processes in the manufacture of medical products smarter and more controllable. Sensors make it possible to digitize diagnostic, control or therapy devices and thus also contribute to making these applications "wearable".
