B: Production of Photonic Sensor Systems
This research area focuses on novel manufacturing concepts and strategies for producing integrated sensor elements. The sensor functions are examined and designed. Furthermore, methods are developed to generate optical waveguides in substrates (e. g. by means of laser radiation) and to integrate them with fluid channels as hybrid systems for fluid diagnostics. New approaches in metrology are required to characterise the generated waveguides and sensors with regard to their optical quality.
