The Clay Lafferty Microsensor Research Laboratory is equipped to support research in the areas of chemical, biological and physical sensors utilizing a variety of technologies and systems. The state-of-the-art facilities utilize a variety of sensor platforms including solid state and acoustic wave sensors, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices, optical waveguide-based sensors and smart sensor systems for both liquid and gas phase monitoring. Optical sensing techniques are employed for complementary chemical identification as well as standalone chemical detection and quantification systems. Highly sensitive magnetic field sensing is also being investigated for various applications including electric battery management systems. The laboratory is involved in designing smart sensor systems relying on advanced sensor signal processing and estimation theory techniques.
Current ongoing projects in the Microsensors Research Laboratory include:
