Ionometry group

General Fields of Research Projects

fh Mikhelson KThe research in the Group is focused on electrochemical and optical ion sensors utilizing different signal transduction mechanisms: potentiometry, voltammetry, change of color, luminescence, IR and Raman spectrometry, SERS. As sensor agents studied and used in the research, ionophores predominate. The Group also has experience in other fields of sensorics: amperometric and nanowire-based resistometric sensors. The research focuses on the state-of-the-art concepts of sensorics, on the development of novel sensing principles and operation mechanisms for sensors to drastically broaden their application areas.
