The AixSense team from RWTH Aachen University, which is traditionally supervised at IWE1 by Professor Sven Ingebrandt and Dr Vivek Pachauri, took part in the main event of the SensUs competition in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in its sixth generation. The team finished the competition in a good midfield position.


From IWE1, Andrea Kauth, Eashika Gosh, Milad Eyvazi Hesar and Prof. Sven Ingebrandt participated in BMT 2022 from Sept 28 to Sept 30. There, Andrea gave a presentation on "Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy as a powerful method for optimizing in situ electroporation of cultured cells onto microelectrode arrays".


Andrea Kauth from the Micro- Nanosystems and Bioelectronics Research Group participated in the "4th World Congress on Electroporation" from 10/10 to 10/13/2022 and presented her poster “Microelectrode array-based electroporation for use in multifunctional retinal implants” there.


Since June 2022, our PhD student Felix Jiang from the Micro- and Nanoelectronic Sensors group is in Tokyo for research purposes. Under the guidance of Prof. Junko Morikawa, he is working at the "Morikawa Lab" at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. In this context, he is working on the project "Polymer Thermophysical Properties Materials Informatics", which is funded by JST CREST. IWE1 is responsible for fabrication and application of micro- and nanoscale temperature sensor arrays as part of his PhD research. In addition, he also conducted research at Shizuoka University as well as at the AIST National Metrology Institute in Tsukuba. Jan will still be in Tokyo until the end of this year.
