Interdigital transducers (IDT) are the core components of electrochemical sensors. At Fraunhofer EMFT, these components are available for impedimetric, amperometric or potentiometrich measurements.
The methods of microelectronics and microsystem technology are optimal for producing compact, high-performance transducers. For this, the researches at Fraunhofer EMFT deploy precious metals like gold or platinum, but also organic conductors and nanomaterials. These are applied on silicon, glas, ceramics or flexible substrates using thin film or printing technologies, according to the individual needs of the customers.
