Sensors

Sensors are a type of application that often require high portability, high throughput, low power, low cost and high sensitivity instruments. Literature is available to guide you through the tools available in our software to improve your research in this field.
Finally, as sensors development also requires the study of the surface properties at a local scale, scanning microscopy techniques can also be of interest.
