Pressure Sensor

A pressure sensor measures pressure, typically of gases or liquids. The pressure is an expression of the force required to stop a fluid from expanding and is usually stated in terms of force per unit area. A pressure sensor usually acts as a transducer.

A pressure sensor measures pressure, typically of gases or liquids. Pressure is an expression of the force required to stop a fluid from expanding, and is usually stated in terms of force per unit area. A pressure sensor usually acts as a transducer; it generates a signal as a function of the pressure imposed. For the purposes of this article, such a signal is electrical.

VOCSens
VOCSens
VOCSens is a spin-off from the Sensors, Microsystems and Actuators Laboratory of Louvain (SMALL) research group, within the Electrical Engineering Department (ELEN), Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics (ICTEAM), Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. UCL is one of the most prestigious universities in Europe and home to worldly recognized laboratories. It relies on a strong expertise based on more than 10 years research on CMOS-compatible environmental sensors development and characterization, including gas, temperature, humidity and Pressure Sensors, as well as the CMOS design of read-out interfaces.The spin-off aims to the development and commercialization of ultra-low-power low-cost multi-pixel CMOS gas microsensors dedicated to selective volatile compounds detection in the Internet of Things and the Industry 4.0.
