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.
Sensor technology includes the study and preparation of sensing material and characterized by related transducer , signal processing and design of system or devices (including micro and nanoscale) in development of sensor to meet society and industrial demands. Sensor system includes (but not limited to) electronic sensors, biosensors, and chemical sensors. Sensor technology has a very important role as the key technology to support a wide variety of research and industrial applications. It is also a vital element that can be applicable to water security, environment and green technology.
Electron Devices is a 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.
