Gas Sensors and Membranes

based on high-performance ceramics

Temperature-resistant functional ceramics are becoming increasingly important in material applications.

Microporous SiBC-membrane for hydrogen separation

Further research topics of the group are related to the development of functional ceramics suitable for applications in the fields of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), optoelectronics (LEDs), pressure, temperature and gas sensors as well as thermoresistant ceramic membranes for high temperature gas separation.

Gas sensor based on polycrystalline In2O3

The correlation of material properties with the molecular structure of the preceramic polymer used is of great importance.

The integration of state-of-the-art spectroscopic methods is applied to understand the mechanisms responsible for sensing and catalytic properties.
