Planos SFB/TRR 123

Development of large-area, polymer-based sensor foils using exclusively optical measurement principles

PlanOS set itself the goal of developing a new generation of exclusively polymer-based optical films on which large-area optical sensors are integrated. By using light to measure variables such as temperature, strain or concentrations of chemical compounds, PlanOS films combine micro-optical components with manufacturing processes for large-area production. Our vision is to provide sensor technology that can be realised on an industrial scale on a large-area polymer film that is only 100 micrometres thick and flexible. A wide range of applications are conceivable: from the aerospace industry and the packaging sector to building monitoring and molecular analysis in the life sciences.

PlanOS was a Collaborative Research Centre (Transregio) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The project partners came from Leibniz University Hannover, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V., and the Technical Universities of Clausthal and Braunschweig.
