AP4 Functional Sensing
Lead: Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Prof. Pfeiffer
AP4 initiates interdisciplinary research and development projects for a sustainable technology transfer of THz sensing into practical applications. This requires not only the establishment of compact sensors in economically viable technology platforms but also the realization of new sensor concepts leveraging electromagnetic interactions in the THz range. To achieve highly sensitive THz sensing, this work package pursues innovative approaches in the fields of high-resolution THz near-field sensing, surface functionalization, microfluidics, and functionalized microsystem technologies.
