  • Quantitative IMS at low pressure (HiKE-IMS)
  • Ionization sources, e.g. CD, UV, ESI, DBD, x-Ray, non-radioactive electron source
  • Gas phase ion chemistry at atmospheric pressure(APCI)
  • APCI and PTR mass spectrometry (ion sources, ion interface, instrumentation)
  • FEM-simulation (multi-physics)
  • MEMS technology and design competence
  • Sensor development (all aspects), i.a. nanosensors and electromagnetic sensors
  • Electronics (analog and digital)
  • Calibration gas generation (ppb)
  • Prototyping and small scale production (CNC machine shop)
  • Sensors and sensor systems for environmental, biotechnological, medical, safety and security applications
