A key factor for the massive installation and use of sensors is miniaturization. The researchers at DISS develop novel sensors and actuators as well as intelligent sensor systems. In order to achieve the necessary miniaturization key enabling technologies, i.e. nanotechnology, photonics, advanced materials, and micro/nano-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS), are implemented.

„“The global market of sensors is poised to grow with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3 percent until 2022 when the market would reach $241 billion.” “

Alied Market Research

The researchers at DISS develop concepts and designs for novel sensors and sensor systems, up to a readiness level of demonstrators and prototypes. DISS has extensive possibilities for the characterization of sensors and actuators and for their validation by multi-physics modelling and analytical description. This may include the analysis of customer-specific requirements and the identification of suitable sensor principles.
