Gas sensitive FETs based on SiC have been studied for the discrimination and quantification of hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the low ppb range. The sensor performance was increased by temperature cycled operation (TCO) and data evaluation based on multivariate statistics, here Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). Discrimination of(More)
Miniaturized detection systems for nanometer-sized airborne particles are in demand, as in applications for onboard diagnostics downstream particulate filters in modern diesel engines. A soot sensor based on resistivity measurements was developed and characterized. This involved generation of soot particles with properties similar to diesel engines using a(More)
ZnO nanostructured materials, such as films and nanoparticles, could provide a suitable platform for development of high performance biosensors due to their unique fundamental material properties. This paper reviews different preparation techniques of ZnO nanocrystals and material issues like wettability, biocompatibility and toxicity, which have an(More)
Zinc oxide is an interesting material for bio and chemical sensors. It is a semiconducting metal oxide with potential as an integrated multisensing sensor platform, which simultaneously detects parameters like change in field effect, mass and surface resistivity. In this investigation we have used resistive sensor measurements with respect to oxygen(More)
Epitaxially grown single layer and multi layer graphene on SiC devices were fabricated and compared for response towards NO2. Due to electron donation from SiC, single layer graphene is n-type with a very low carrier concentration. The choice of substrate is demonstrated to enable tailoring of the electronic properties of graphene, with a SiC substrate(More)
Thymocytes differentiate upon interactions with microenvironmental components, but the precise role of different stromal cells, or other T cells, in early differentiative events remains unclear. Here we have analyzed the in vitro differentiation of double-negative (DN) thymocytes from young adult mice. We demonstrate that a substantial proportion of DN(More)
In this paper temperature modulation and gate bias modulation of a gas sensitive field effect transistor based on silicon carbide (SiC-FET) are combined in order to increase the selectivity. Data evaluation based on extracted features describing the shape of the sensor response was performed using multivariate statistics, here by Linear Discriminant(More)
