Enerize is developing various microelectronic sensors based on new multiple-composition thin‑layer materials for determining parameters such as humidity, temperature, ultra-violet radiation, bio analysis, etc. These sensors will have increased reliability, sensitivity, and can be faster-acting and more precise than current micro-sensors.
New combined (integral) type sensors will allow simultaneous measurement of several parameters. For example, combined sensors may comprise humidity sensors consisting of temperature sensors, and thin-layer heater with increased operating range and increased sensitivity.
In summary, the Enerize team has developed a new class of sensors based on new thin-film semi-conducting materials including cerium, tungsten, dysprosium oxides and two- composition oxide systems. This new class of sensors will have the following applications:
- Radiation resistant highly-sensitive temperature sensors (atomic power, thermal power)
- Heat flows and heat loss sensors utilizing portable electronic transducer tubes
- Microelectronic sensors for oxygen and carbon oxides content for control and selection of optimal firing conditions (e.g. thermoelectric power stations, boiler-houses, etc.)
- Microelectronic sensors for determination of hydrogen concentration
- Microelectronic sensors for determination and control of ion concentration (calcium, fluorine, etc.) for determination of water hardness at thermoelectric power stations.
