Pressure micro-sensor with easy on-chip integration

Pressure sensors are central to the operation of systems in areas as diverse as aviation, medical treatment and industrial process monitoring. One common technology is piezoresistive sensing (PRS), where pressure is measured via a simple a electric signal. A pressure difference causes deformation of a membrane atop a sealed cavity, translated into a measurable change […]

Nieuwe plastic elektronica kan wereldwijde voedselverspilling sterk terugbrengen

Miljoenen tonnen voedsel worden jaarlijks weggegooid omdat het ‘over de datum’ is. Maar de datum op de verpakking is altijd een voorzichtige schatting, waardoor veel voedsel dat nog goed is in de afvalcontainer belandt. Zou het daarom niet handig zijn als de verpakking ‘proeft’ of het eten nog goed is? Onderzoekers van de Technische Universiteit […]

Fluorescent Tattoo Alert! MIT’s Latest Trick for Embedded Medical Sensors

MIT is exploring embedded microworm biomedical sensors that detect medical conditions. And reading them could be as simple as shining a light on the skin and seeing the microworm tattoos glow. A number of research effortsare underway to exploit micro-particle technology to sense medical conditions, but though there are significant benefits to the technology, the actual […]
