Video on NANOSENSORS™ Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensors (MSS) for olfactory sensing passes 1500 views mark

The video on NANOSENSORS™ Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensors (MSS) for olfactory sensing has passed the 1500 views mark. Thank you all for watching.

Video: What are NANOSENSORS Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensors (MSS) for R&D in gas/odor sensing?

The NANOSENSORS™ Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensor – MSS is a non-packaged MEMS sensor, a silicon membrane platform supported with four beams on which piezoresistors are embedded. It is mainly dedicated to R&D in the areas of olfactory sensing and electronic noses.

There are currently two major applications for this type of sensor:

  • the MSS has a great potential as a core component for electronic (artificial) nose systems / olfactory sensing systems utilized in e.g., medical, food, environment, safety and security fields.
  • the MSS can also be used for assessment of various materials like organic conductors, magnetic and superconductor materials in torque magnetometry.

To find out more please have a look at the video or at the NANOSENSORS™ MSS webpage or the NANOSENSORS™Special Developments List. On these pages you will not only get more information on which types of MSS Sensors are currently available but you will also find further information on the NANOSENSORS™ MSS 8 Channel Readout Module ( MSS-8RM ). The MSS-8RM is a basic electronic module to operate and to readout NANOSENSORS™ MSS that can be integrated in the researchers own set-up.
