From blast furnaces to deep space

Specialised high temperature applications for industry, upcoming applications in healthcare, possible use cases in aeronautics – those are the options for transponders and sensors with “Surface Acoustic Wave” technology (SAW). SAW enables the identification of objects while simultaneously measuring physical properties such as temperature, pressure, or weight – up to layered measurement of cell structures and blood samples, the applications of which are already apparent today in bio-sensor technology.

The CTR research team has specialized on developing certain RFID sensors: passive sensor systems which even deliver information at 1,000 degrees Celsius

The high-temperature furnance in the laboratory of the sensor research center looks rather compact, cold and bulky. However Alfred Binder, senior researcher at CTR, proudly watches the tubular furnance's display: 1,140 degrees Celsius. „That's a special moment“, Binder explains, „in spite of the high temperatures inside the oven we're able to read the electrical signals of our SAW chip, which for test purposes is inside, stably and for hours using our measurement setup.
