New sensor chips; low-cost, smart and efficient

In a greenhouse, cucumbers are growing beautifully. A grower is cultivating them under the most favourable conditions, closely monitoring the precise amount of water they need and whether the temperature is optimal, to ensure that the cucumbers that end up on your plate are juicy, flavoursome and green. The grower’s job is by no means carefree, however. What if the crop is blighted by some disease? One of the strategies that researchers are working on to prevent this involves an “electronic nose”. All plants, cucumbers included, emit a scent. An electronic nose can immediately detect whether something is wrong. The same technique can be applied in a chicken coop or cowshed. As soon as a disease breaks out, the electronic nose will detect it and give a warning.

Professor Wouter Serdijn legt in het consumenten programma Radar het bedrog achter de Healy bloot

Het beschermt je tegen stress, depressie, ziekten en zelfs tegen kanker. Tenminste, dat beweren de promotors van het ogenschijnlijk medische product Healy.

'Totale onzin', aldus Professor Serdijn. 'Healy weet niks en meet niks. Hij stuurt hoogstens willekeurige elektronische frequenties, en ook hiervan is niet bewezen dat ze invloed hebben op je cellen.'

Veni for Dr. Matús Rybak

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded a Veni grant worth up to 250,000 euros to fourteen highly promising young TU Delft scientists. The grant provides them with the opportunity to further elaborate their own ideas during a period of three years. Among those fourteen is Matús Rybak who will be affiliated in the TeraHerz Sensing group.

New sensor chips; low-cost, smart and efficient

Imagine using a chip to analyse heart cells, or being notified by a smart plaster if your heart rate gets too high. These are two examples of research that Frans Widdershoven is working on. This fresh new professor is developing new smart sensors.
