A new biosensor for the COVID-19 virus

A team of researchers from Empa, ETH Zurich and Zurich University Hospital has succeeded in developing a novel sensor for detecting the new coronavirus. In future it could be used to measure the concentration of the virus in the environment – for example in places where there are many people or in hospital ventilation systems.

Ultra sensitive magnetic field sensor

Small magnetic fields from the human body can usually only be picked up by very sensitive superconducting magnetic field sensors that have to be cooled by liquid helium to near absolute zero (which is minus 273 degrees Celsius). But now researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have developed a much Read more about Ultra sensitive magnetic field sensor[…]

New Sensor for Detecting UVB and Ambient Light in Mobile Applications

Integrated Device Technology, Inc.® (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today introduced an optical sensor that accurately detects UVB and ambient light. Like the recently announced ZOPT2202, the two-channel ZOPT2201 offers new health and wellness capabilities for wearables and other mobile technology, but also features the ability to measure light for screen controls. Developed by engineers at recently acquired Read more about New Sensor for Detecting UVB and Ambient Light in Mobile Applications[…]
