2.2 - Kalibrierung von Thermometern in situ im Prozess

M. Schalles & P. Vrdoljak
Im Bereich der Life-Sciences-Technology müssen Prozessthermometer aufgrund regulatorischer Anforderungen regelmäßig kalibriert werden. Derzeit müssen diese aus dem Prozess ausgebaut und extern kalibriert werden, was, bedingt durch die Kalibrierung oder auch durch Prozessstillstände, sowohl zu hohen Aufwänden, als auch zu hohen Kosten führt. Um diese Kosten zu minimieren und die Prozesssicherheit zu erhöhen, wurde ein Kalibrierverfahren entwickelt, welches eine kontinuierliche Einpunktkalibrierung eines Thermometers direkt im Prozess ermöglicht. Diese in-situ-Kalibrierung erfolgt dabei mit Hilfe eines in das...

Solid electrolyte gas sensors based on yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) are suited for many of these applications due to their broad measuring range, short response time and outstanding long-term stability. Their selectivity for single analytes in complex matrices however often needs significant improvement. In this contribution, different approaches for...

D6.2 - Characterisation of a 5 MN·m Torque Transducer by Combining Traditional Calibration and Finite Element Method Simulations

P. Weidinger, C. Schlegel, G. Foyer & R. Kumme
Precise torque measurement in nacelle test benches increases the demand for an expansion of the torque measurement range up to several MN·m and a torque transfer standard. To this end, a 5 MN·m torque transducer was acquired. However, a traceable torque calibration is only possible up to 1.1 MN·m so far. This calibration is presented and discussed in this paper. In order to fully characterise the 5 MN·m torque transfer standard, a finite element analysis...

The challenge is to emit less than 1 mW of power to avoid harming the eye while coping with the low reflection of the eye of 4% for normal incidence. With solely analog infrared diodes and phototransistors the vibration of the cornea of an enucleated porcine eye is demonstrated to be detectable for the...

P3.05 - Reduktion der Ansprechzeit Hydrogel-basierter Sensoren

S. Binder, A. T. Krause & G. Gerlach
Die Leistungsfähigkeit Hydrogel-basierter Sensoren im Vergleich zu herkömmlichen biochemischen Sensoren ist bislang vor allem durch deren lange Ansprechzeiten eingeschränkt. Ursache der hohen Zeitkonstanten sind die für Polymere bzw. Hydrogele typischen Diffusionsprozesse, welche beim Quellen und Entquellen des Hydrogels als chemomechanischem Wandler zum Tragen kommen. In dieser Arbeit soll die Anwendung der Kraftkompensationsmethode dem entgegenwirken. Dazu wird in Verbindung mit einem MEMS-Drucksensor als mechanoelektrischem Wandler eine neue Methode der Kraftkompensation vorgestellt. Grundlage dieses Ansatzes bildet ein...

It was found that both Co-doped SnO2 and La-doped ZnO sensors exhibit a sufficient sensitivity to 10 ppm of hydrogen peroxide vapors...

P2.1 - Novel simulation algorithms for developing measuring techniques for multichannel ultrasonic microscopy

E. Kühnicke & M. Wolf
New ultrasonic measuring techniques use information from local distribution of reflected waves gained with arrays. As they are taking the wave behavior of sound into account, simple geometric models are not sufficient to understand the dependence between quantities being measured directly and these quantities being of interest, like sound velocity in media or the geometry of a specimen. To get this understanding, sound field simulations are necessary which allow to derive evaluation algorithm and to...

D6.4 - Pressure Sensor for Remote Readout in Aqueous Environment

M. Gerken & T. Karrock
Implantable intraocular pressure sensors are of high interest for early diagnosis of glaucoma. We propose a miniaturized, remote-readout, pressure-sensitive element that can be integrated into an artificial intraocular lens. A reference volume is sealed with a flexible photonic-crystal membrane. The optical spectrum reflected from this nanostructured waveguide depends on the incidence angle. A deformation of the membrane is calculated from an RGB image. Signal drift is a challenge with this type of membrane sensor. Here,...

B5.3 - High-Resolution Laser-Vibrometer Microscopy

C. Rembe & R. Kowarsch
Precise high-frequency electronics, as for example in smart phones, require advanced filters based on micro- or even nanoelectromechanical (MEM or NEM) resonators.

A.4.4 - Langasite-based Microbalance for Determination of the Non-stoichiometry in Praseodymium-Cerium Oxide Thin Films at Elevated Temperatures

S. Schröder & H. Fritze
The oxygen partial pressure dependent non-stoichiometry of praseodymium-cerium oxide thin films (Pr0.1Ce0.9O2-δ, PCO) is investigated at temperatures between 700 and 900 °C. The non-stoichiometry of PCO is determined gravimetrically using a high-temperature microbalance consisting of piezoelec-tric langasite (La3Ga5SiO14) resonators. Shifts of the resonance frequency are correlated with mass changes caused by oxygen incorporation/release using the Sauerbrey equation and converted into the oxygen non-stoichiometry of PCO. Chemical and mechanical properties of the PCO films might influence...

A4.2 - Detection of short trace gas pulses

T. Baur, A. Schütze & T. Sauerwald
A novel method for detection of short gas pulses at very low concentrations is presented. The approach is based on a special temperature modulation technique leading to the differential measurement of surface reduction (DSR) of a metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) gas sensor. For this method, the sensor surface is oxidized at high temperature (e.g. 400 °C). An abrupt step in temperature to e.g. 100 °C results in a nonequilibrium state with a strong excess of...

I. Ullmann, J. Adametz, D. Oppelt & M. Vossiek
This contribution presents a novel method for the detection of material defects by means of millimeter wave radar imaging. Unlike common radar signal processing algorithms, which are usually based on the assumption of free space propagation of the electromagnetic wave, our approach also considers the effects occurring at material discontinuities, namely refraction and the change in phase velocity. Therefore, by means of the developed reconstruction algorithm, we are able to correctly depict the inside of...
