Functional Devices Laboratory (FDL)

INTRODUCTION

Functional Devices Laboratory (FDL), formerly known as Sensor Technology Laboratory (STL) had been restructured and renamed in line with ITMA new ecosystem. The laboratory aims to be a leader in sensor technology and electron devices for nanotechnology and advanced materials. The main activities of the laboratory are conducting research in related fields, postgraduate programs, provide trainings and consultancy services.

OBJECTIVE

1. To be a leading research center in Sensor Technology and
    ElectronDevices for Advanced Materials and Nano Materials.

2. To produce experts in the field of Sensor Technology and
    ElectronDevices for Advanced Materials and Nano Materials.

3. To be a knowledge dissemination center of Sensor Technology
    and Electron Devices for Advanced Materials and Nano
    Materials


4.  To build a network of strategic partnership between local and
     international researchers from public and private institutions.


RESEARCH GROUP

A. Sensor Technology
Sensor Technology is a research program that is offered since 1st April 2011 in ITMA as a Sensor Technology Engineering. The main focus of this research program is to design and develop sensors that can be utilized in every aspect in daily life that includes agriculture, water security, environment and point-of-care. This program will also be focusing on the sensor interface, signal processing, sensor networks and energy harvesting related to sensors. This research program also covers all related to sensor networks research, including Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) which are used widely in industrial and consumer application such as monitoring, control and automation. The sensors can be categorized into a few types such as electronic sensors, biosensors, and chemical sensors.  

B. Electron Devices
One of program that has been offered under this laboratory starting from 2012. This program aims to perform basic and applied research in the growth of semiconductors and related electronic materials, as well as micro analysis with the aim of developing new and improved electronic devices. The vision in this area is next generation electronic devices and sensors for improved performance and reliability in complex environments. Research areas include nanoelectronics and MEMS, RF and energy harvesting.
