P5.8 - Light-stimulated hydrogel actuators with incorporated graphene oxide for microfluidic applications

L. Breuer, M. Raue, T. Mang, M. J. Schöning, T. Wagner & R. Thoelen
Graphene oxide (GO) nanoparticles, which are able to convert light energy into heat, were incorporated into temperature-sensitive Poly-N-isopropylacrylamide (P-NIPAAm) hydrogels. In contrast to pure P-NIPAAm hydrogels, the new polymers with GO showed significant sensitivity towards light as a stimulus. The photothermal conversion and heating process of hydrogels under illumination were investigated by IRthermography. Furthermore, first experiments for a possible application as light-driven microvalves within lab-on-chip systems were performed.

A1.2 - Processing and evaluation of measured data from Build-Up systems with special regard to various designs

M. Wagner & F. Tegtmeier
The largest force standard in Europe with a nominal force of 16.5 MN and an uncertainty of 1 x 10-4 is located in PTB, Braunschweig. Since there is a high demand for calibration in the meganewton range, this force scale needs to be exceeded. To realize this, the use of large bu-systems as transfer standards is considered [1]. A reliable uncertainty budget is a basic requirement for the traceability of force in the meganewton range...

L. Spinelle, M. Gerboles, G. Kok & T. Sauerwald
The Air Quality Directive AQD sets the limit value for benzene at 5 μg/m³ over a calendar year which corresponds to the upper range of concentration measured in air quality monitoring. Currently, the sensitivity of sensors represents the major challenge for measuring benzene in the ppb range. In 2005, benzene levels in ambient air less than 100 ppb were out of the range of gas sensors. Nowadays, the technological progress resulted in an improvement of...

P8.4 - Switching-Type Lambda Sensor Manufactured by Joining of Sintered Zirconia via Glass Solder Paste

F. Schubert, St. Wollenhaupt, J. Kita, G. Hagen & R. Moos
This paper presents a planar switching-type lambda sensor fabricated by joining the heating and sensing components made of yttria-stabilized zirconia using a glass soldering paste. A way to produce a dense joining layer was found. The resulting sensor devices were compared with a sensor manufactured in a high temperature co-firing process and with a commercial sensor. The resulting sensor devices performed as expected and “switched” between lean and rich exhaust atmospheres.

C. Lui, J.-G. Liu & J. Qiu
In this paper, a new method is proposed to use the duty cycle of the output signal from a differential Hall Effect gear tooth sensor for determining the rotational direction. The magnetic polarization of the detected differential magnetic field density is changed by changing the rotational direction of the target wheel. Therefore a variation in duty cycle of the electrical output signal is visible when the geometric duty cycle of the target wheel is designed...

Modern periscopes for submarines and armoured vehicles include components like daylight cameras, thermal cameras and laser range finders, often in addition to an optical channel for direct sight. Like any complex component which has been conceived for use in land and water vehicles, all periscopes must be subjected to tests under severe mechanical, thermal and climatic loading conditions. It is fundamentally important and safety relevant that the optical performance is maintained during such extreme conditions....

It is in this case deals with the calculation of the individual components of the spring sensor. Thereby the crucial part for this is the calculation of the inductance of the spring sensor, because the components of the signal processing must be designed for them. Furthermore, it...

Non-destructive, contactless and robust characterization of coatings is an ongoing and challenging task in the development of measurement technologies. The determination of elastic material parameters of coating and substrate can serve as a convenient method for the characterization of coatings. In our measurement system, elastic material parameters were derived from the dispersion of surface acoustic waves.

R. Freier & A. König
Surging application fields of integrated electronics and sensors, as e.g., automation, internet of things (IoT), cyber-physical(-production) systems (CP(P)S), or Industry 4.0, require more able, versatile, and dependable sensor electronics and systems. In particular, cost effective features of self monitoring, -calibration, trimming, or -healing are sought after. State-of-the-art integrated components for sensor signal conditioning are usually not generic and dedicated to specific sensors or applications and are not offering self-x capability. Thus, based on a survey...
