  • Creep adjustment of strain gauges based on granular NiCr-carbon thin films

    • Abstract: Creep adjustment of strain gauges based on granular NiCr-carbon thin films
      Maximilian Mathis, Dennis Vollberg, Matthäus Langosch, Dirk Göttel, Angela Lellig, and Günter Schultes
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 53–61, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-53-2021, 2021
      NiCr-carbon thin-film strain gauges offer the outstanding characteristic of a very high strain sensitivity. This can be very advantageous for many high-precision mechanical sensors like load cells. A downside of sensors based on these NiCr-carbon strain gauges is a rather large creep error, meaning reversible signal deviations at a constant load. We present two applicable methods for adjustment of the creep error: a modification of the film composition and a modification of the strain transfer.

  • Characterization of sand and sand–binder systems from the foundry
           industry with electrical impedance spectroscopy

    • Abstract: Characterization of sand and sand–binder systems from the foundry industry with electrical impedance spectroscopy
      Luca Bifano, Alice Fischerauer, Alfred Liedtke, and Gerhard Fischerauer
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 43–51, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-43-2021, 2021
      This paper deals with the electrical investigation of various sand mixtures used in foundries for mold and core production. It is possible to classify various molding sand mixtures reproducibly on the basis of their electrical characteristics. This knowledge can now be used to develop measurement systems for processes in the foundry industry and thus increase product quality. In addition, resources can be conserved, and functioning closed-loop systems can be integrated into foundry processes.

  • Impact of particle size and morphology of cobalt oxide on the thermal
           response to methane examined by thermal analysis

    • Abstract: Impact of particle size and morphology of cobalt oxide on the thermal response to methane examined by thermal analysis
      Olena Yurchenko, Hans-Fridtjof Pernau, Laura Engel, Benedikt Bierer, Martin Jägle, and Jürgen Wöllenstein
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 37–42, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-37-2021, 2021
      Differential thermal analysis (DTA) was used to examine the effect of the particle size and morphology of Co3O4 on its thermal response under exposure to 1 % CH4. The DTA response results from the catalytic oxidation of methane. Co3O4 samples differing in particle size and morphology were produced by ball milling or were synthesized. The investigations performed with temperatures between 250 and 450 °C reveal that both particle size and shape have a considerable effect on thermal response.

  • Comparison of laser-based photoacoustic and optical detection of methane

    • Abstract: Comparison of laser-based photoacoustic and optical detection of methane
      Thomas Strahl, Johannes Herbst, Eric Maier, Sven Rademacher, Christian Weber, Hans-Fridtjof Pernau, Armin Lambrecht, and Jürgen Wöllenstein
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 25–35, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-25-2021, 2021
      For safety, environmental and economic reasons, methane leak detection is one of the most requested tasks for gas measurement devices. This paper compares the performance of a laser-based optical and acoustical detection scheme at different wavelengths and laser types, respectively. This forms a good basis for further developments of methane leak detection devices or can help to choose the right configuration for a certain methane leak detection application.

  • Six-degree-of-freedom pose estimation with µm/µrad accuracy
           based on laser multilateration

    • Abstract: Six-degree-of-freedom pose estimation with µm/µrad accuracy based on laser multilateration
      Jan Nitsche, Matthias Franke, Nils Haverkamp, and Daniel Heißelmann
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 19–24, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-19-2021, 2021
      The estimation of the six-degree-of-freedom position and orientation of an end effector is of high interest in industrial robotics. High precision and data rates are important requirements when choosing an adequate measurement system. In this work, a six-degree-of-freedom pose estimation setup based on laser multilateration is described together with the measurement principle and self-calibration strategies used in this setup. In an experimental setup, data rates of 200 Hz are achieved.

  • Measurements at laser materials processing machines: spectrum
           deconvolution including uncertainties and model selection

    • Abstract: Measurements at laser materials processing machines: spectrum deconvolution including uncertainties and model selection
      Rolf Behrens, Björn Pullner, and Marcel Reginatto
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 13–18, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-13-2021, 2021
      The dose rate and spectral distribution of X-ray emissions from laser materials processing have been determined using a thermoluminescence detector (TLD)-based spectrometer. The penetration depth of the radiation into the spectrometer depends on its energy, so that the energy-resolved spectrum of the radiation can be calculated from the TLD dose values by means of mathematical methods (Bayesian deconvolution). The measurements are traceable to the SI.

    • Abstract: Inline quality monitoring of diesel exhaust fluid (AdBlue) by using the 3ω method
      Ralf E. Bernhardsgrütter, Christoph J. Hepp, Martin Jägle, Hans-Fridtjof Pernau, Katrin Schmitt, and Jürgen Wöllenstein
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 5–12, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-5-2021, 2021
      The selective catalytic reduction, an after-treatment method using diesel exhaust fluid (AdBlue), is needed to reduce the emissions of diesel combustion processes. It is crucial to monitor the diesel exhaust fluid. This article presents a platinum thin-film sensor using the 3-omega method to characterize the diesel exhaust fluid. The information about the concentration of urea in water can be extracted. The results show that this sensor can determine the urea content to within 1 % by weight.

  • Explaining to different audiences the new definition and experimental

    • Abstract: Explaining to different audiences the new definition and experimental realizations of the kilogram
      Joaquín Valdés
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 10, 1–4, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-10-1-2021, 2021
      Effective from 20 May 2019, the kilogram is now defined in terms of the numerical value of the Planck constant h. Replacing the artefact definition of the kilogram by a new one based on the mass of a particle, or the atomic mass constant mu, would have been preferable for ease of understanding, among other reasons. In this paper we will discuss some educational limitations of teaching to different audiences the new definition and corresponding realizations of the kilogram.

      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 425–442, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-425-2020, 2020
      We present the metrological characterization and calibration of three different types of thermographic cameras for quantitative temperature measurement traceable to the International Temperature Scale (ITS-90). Relevant technical specifications are determined according to the requirements given in the series of Technical Directives VDI/VDE 5585. For the IETD and the NU, we also show how a significant improvement in the parameters can be achieved with the help of the data reference method.

  • Random gas mixtures for efficient gas sensor calibration

    • Abstract: Random gas mixtures for efficient gas sensor calibration
      Tobias Baur, Manuel Bastuck, Caroline Schultealbert, Tilman Sauerwald, and Andreas Schütze
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 411–424, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-411-2020, 2020
      Applications like air quality, fire detection and detection of explosives require selective and quantitative measurements in an ever-changing background of interfering gases. One main issue hindering the successful implementation of gas sensors in real-world applications is the lack of appropriate calibration procedures for advanced gas sensor systems. This article presents a calibration scheme for gas sensors based on gas profiles with unique randomized gas mixtures.

  • Improvement of the performance of a capacitive relative pressure sensor:
           case of large deflections

    • Abstract: Improvement of the performance of a capacitive relative pressure sensor: case of large deflections
      Samia Achouch, Fakhita Regragui, and Mourad Gharbi
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 401–409, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-401-2020, 2020
      Capacitive pressure sensors are widely used in a variety of applications and are built using a variety of processes, including 3D printing technology. The use of this technology could lead us to a situation of large deflections, depending on the mechanical properties of the materials and the resolution of the machines used. This aspect is rarely reported in previous research works that focus on improving the performance in terms of linearity and sensitivity of these sensors. This paper describes the realization of relative pressure sensors designed as two different structures; the first one is the classical design composed of a single capacitor, while the second one is composed of two capacitors, designed in such a way that they both vary according to the applied pressure but in opposite senses to each other. The purpose is to study in particular the performance of the second structure in the case of large deflections for the context of educational use. Polylactic acid (PLA) is used as the manufacturing material to print the sensors by means of a printer based on fused deposing modeling, while conductive materials are used to provide the electrical conductivity required for the printed sensors. The manufactured sensors were tested under pressure in the range of [0; 9] KPa. Compared to the performance obtained with the first structure, simulation and experimental results show that the second structure improves linearity and allows the sensitivity to be increased from a minimum of 9.98×10-2 pF/hPa to a minimum of 3.4×10-1 pF/hPa.

      Manuela Gerken, Aurélie Solignac, Davood Momeni Pakdehi, Alessandra Manzin, Thomas Weimann, Klaus Pierz, Sibylle Sievers, and Hans Werner Schumacher
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 391–399, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-391-2020, 2020
      Traceably calibrated scanning Hall microscopy (SHM) is a versatile tool for the quantitative characterization of magnetic microstructures. To enable SHM with a resolution in the micrometer range under ambient conditions, two Hall sensor materials, gold and graphene, were investigated. A SHM setup utilizing a 5 μm gold Hall sensor was calibrated. The field sensitivity and the detailed uncertainty budget are discussed. The presented traceable calibration is validated by comparison to simulations.

  • Glass electrode half-cells for measuring unified pH in ethanol–water
           mixtures

    • Abstract: Glass electrode half-cells for measuring unified pH in ethanol–water mixtures
      Agnes Heering, Frank Bastkowski, and Steffen Seitz
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 383–389, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-383-2020, 2020
      The new concept of a unified pH scale can be used to compare acidities of different kinds of solvents and their mixtures. The aim of the work was to investigate the robustness of the measurement method with four commercially available glass electrodes for non-aqueous media in comparison with the rather specific type of cell used so far for this measurement. The measurement results in aqueous mixtures of ethanol show good agreement.

    • Abstract: Traceable measurements of harmonic (2 to 150) kHz emissions in smart grids: uncertainty calculation
      Daniela Istrate, Deepak Amaripadath, Etienne Toutain, Robin Roche, and Fei Gao
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 375–381, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-375-2020, 2020
      The necessity to measure harmonic emissions between 2 and 150 kHz is outlined by several standard committees and electrical utilities. This paper presents a measurement system and its traceable characterization designed to acquire and analyze voltages up to 230 V and currents up to 100 A with harmonics up to 150 kHz that may occur in smart grids. The uncertainty estimation is carried out and described in detail for both the fundamental and suprahmarmonics components.

  • Intelligent fault detection of electrical assemblies using hierarchical

    • Abstract: Intelligent fault detection of electrical assemblies using hierarchical convolutional networks for supporting automatic optical inspection systems
      Alida Ilse Maria Schwebig and Rainer Tutsch
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 363–374, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-363-2020, 2020
      In order to further increase the performance of neural networks in the field of optical quality assurance of soldered joints, a hierarchical classifier can be used instead of a single network. The global expansion of the classifier enables the inspection task to be distributed over several subnetworks, which results in higher accuracy. Since the individual sub-models only concentrate on the identification of certain characteristics, categorical problems can be solved more effectively.

      Anastasiya Ruchets, Nils Donker, Jens Zosel, Daniela Schönauer-Kamin, Ralf Moos, Ulrich Guth, and Michael Mertig
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 355–362, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-355-2020, 2020
      A commercial solid electrolyte gas sensor of the type "Pt YSZ Pt, air" based on yttria-stabilized zirconia for colorimetric oxygen detection was operated in optimized dynamic electrochemical modes. Cyclic voltammetry and square-wave voltammetry were used for the detection of NO and O2 in N2 in the temperature range between 550 and 750 °C. Due to the differences of electrode kinetics of the single components it is possible to detect these redox active gases selectively and quasi-simultaneously.

  • Detection of plastics in water based on their fluorescence behavior

    • Abstract: Detection of plastics in water based on their fluorescence behavior
      Maximilian Wohlschläger and Martin Versen
      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 337–343, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-337-2020, 2020
      Plastic waste is one of the biggest growing factors contributing to environmental pollution. So far there has been no established method to detect and identify plastics in environmental matrices. Thus, a method based on their characteristic fluorescence behavior is used to investigate whether plastics can be detected and identified in tap water under laboratory conditions. The experiments show that the identification of plastics as a function of water depth is possible. As the identification becomes more difficult with higher water depths, investigations with a highly sensitive imaging method were carried out to obtain an areal integration of the fluorescent light and thus better results.

    • Abstract: Multi-gas sensor to detect simultaneously nitrogen oxides and oxygen

      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 327–335, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-327-2020, 2020
      In this contribution, an inexpensive and robust impedimetric NOx sensor is presented. The impedance of a functional thick film depends selectively on the NOx concentration in the exhaust but shows a dependency on the oxygen concentration. Therefore, an additional temperature-independent resistive oxygen sensor structure was integrated on the same sensor platform. It serves not only to determine the oxygen concentration in the exhaust, but also to correct the oxygen dependency of the NOx sensor.

  • A tactile sensor based on magneto-sensitive elastomer to determine the

    • Abstract: A tactile sensor based on magneto-sensitive elastomer to determine the position of an indentation

      J. Sens. Sens. Syst., 9, 319–326, https://doi.org/10.5194/jsss-9-319-2020, 2020
      In this paper, we present a tactile sensor based on the interaction of coils with a magnetic elastomer. The first experimental approach is sampling the sensor with indentations of constant depth at different positions. A mathematical model is used to reproduce the data. Afterwards, this model is applied to random indentations at the same depth. As a result, we provide conceptual proof for position determination in one direction as a basis for a refined sensor design and further model approaches.
