【DE】Technology platform for NDIR gas sensors wins AMA Innovation Award 2022

The AMA Association for Sensors and Measurement Technology (AMA) signed on the 10th May the winning team with the AMA Innovation Award at the SENSOR+TEST 2022 in Nuremberg. The jury certified this development as a particularly innovative solution approach, with clearly recognizable market relevance. The development team of the technology platform for NDIR Gassensorik, a joint project of Micro-Hybrid Electronic GmbH, the CIS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik GmbH, Siegert Thin Film Technology GmbH and 5microns GmbH, was pleased about the prize money of 10,000 euros.


The technology platform for highly reliable NDIR gas sensors is an innovative gas sensor system with a novel spectral broadband infrared (IR) emitter. The development of Micro-Hybrid Electronic GmbH and its partners combines groundbreaking technologies from MEMS chips to modules for gas sensors with special long-term stability even in extreme environmental conditions. A patented construction, the hermetically dense construction technology of the IR components and IR emitter chips with micro nanostructures as optical functionalization are the innovation drivers for new cross-industry gas measurement applications.

The jury congratulates the development team consisting of Steffen Biermann, Patrick Sachse, Thomas Bartnitzek from Micro-Hybrid Electronic GmbH, Professor Dr. Thomas Ortlepp from the CIS Research Institute for Microsensory GmbH, Dr. Ralf Koppert from Siegert Thin Film Technology GmbH and Lars Dittrich from 5microns GmbH.


The technology platform for NDIR gas sensors maps classic sensors with technological solutions at the highest level and shows that a sensor element alone is usually not sufficient. The assembly and connection technology is also essential for long-term stability and reliability. Only in the system combination of different components are solutions achieved for a wide variety of applications,” explains Professor Andreas Schütze, jury chairman of the University of Saarland, this year’s decision.
