Titel: Highly Integrated Wideband Microwave Sensors for Emerging Biomedical Applications


Abstract: One of the most important challenges of modern and aging societies that need to be addressed is the improvement of health and lifetime of individuals. In the last decade, immense progress has been made in electronics based on nanoelectronics technologies in conjunction with complex smart and embedded system realizations. The current development trends in these key technologies are going to enable crucial innovations and the proliferation of solutions for medical applications such as biomedical sensing and spectroscopy. This talk presents miniaturized microwave and millimeter-wave silicon-germanium circuits and sensor systems for the above mentioned challenges. The present work explains the basic measurement principles and introduces the integrated vector network analyzer as a fundamental component for the design of compact powerful biomedical sensors. Several single-chip sensors as well as hybrid solutions will be presented and discussed. Furthermore, a special ultra-wideband sensor concept for spectroscopy coming with solutions for the injection of electromagnetic waves into biological samples will be demonstrated. Finally, future development trends will be discussed.
