Sensor for liquids

Dear Sir or Madam,

Sensors are indispensable in medical technology. In Vienna, a sensor has now been developed that works with just one drop of blood and can thus possibly detect doping offenders. An exciting thing! Learn more in the interview: "One sensor for different liquids".

Have a nice day!

Improving 'smart' composites for biomedical sensors

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

IKBFU Physicists have successfully tested the new magnetic micro wire-based concept of "smart" composites production. The new composites are related to the multiferroic-class materials which have mutually controlled magnetic and electric properties.

Chip for liquid biopsy to detect prostate cancer

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

Researchers of Sechenov University together with their colleagues from Australia used the microfluidics technology to develop a device able to isolate cancer cells from urine of patients with prostate cancer. The study showed high sensitivity and specificity of the new method in diagnosing prostate cancer. The results obtained were published in Cancers.

Researchers demonstrate new concept of optical fiber sensors


Optical fibers enable our era of the internet, as they carry vast amounts of data all around the world. Fibers are also an excellent sensor platform. They can reach over hundreds of kilometers, simply embedded within structures, and can be installed in hazardous environment where the use of electricity is prohibited. However, optical fiber sensors also face an inherent, fundamental challenge.
