Collaboration with RISE and visit to Senseair

From 9-13 May, the leading researcher from ISSP UL’s Laboratory of Micro and Nanodevices, PhD Thomas Alexander Yager, visited RISE Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) and Swedish-based company Senseair. The visit to RISE was related to his post-doctoral research project working towards lab-on-chip graphene sensors and CAMART2.

The researcher’s cooperation with Senseair has been developing for several years. In the beginning, the Swedish company and the researcher were connected through RISE, one of the CAMART2 core partners, in a graphene-based infra-red gas sensors project. Knowledge of graphene technologies and device prototypes by electron beam lithography performed at the ISSP cleanrooms was Thomas Yager’s contribution to the ongoing project.

The visit to Senseair facilities in Kista took place with Prof. Qin Wang and senior researcher Ingemar Petermann from RISE. At Senseair, researchers discussed the outcomes of the project and opportunities for new technological approaches and ideas for further collaborations between our institutes.

The collaboration between the ISSP UL, RISE, and Senseair has taken place over a couple of years. Due to the pandemic and travel restrictions, communication was virtual up to this time. Nevertheless, it recently resulted in a joint research article published in an open access journal Sensors.

Senseair is a Swedish-based leading global provider of air and gas sensing technology. The company manufactures sensors and solutions in the fields of indoor and outdoor air quality, alcohol screening, gas alarms, life science, and transportation.
