Development and evaluation of an optical gas detector. Development of a miniaturized gas detector for carbon monoxide for later integration in portable end devices. The aim is to build a laboratory prototype of an optical gas detector and to use it to take measurements of various gas concentrations. Starting point is an existing concept design. During the development, the measurement data acquisition and evaluation should be automated with a new software (Matlab) and the measurement capability of the concept should be tested with measurements series. Work packages:

  • Development of the gas sensor as a lab sample (with optimization if needed)

  • Computer-aided control of the light sources (Matlab)

  • Programming of data acquisition and evaluation (Matlab)

  • Verification of the measurement capability / determination of the max. tolerances to achieve the measurement capability

  • Documentation and presentation of the results

  • Student in technical/optical field (Bachelor)

  • Confident handling of MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

  • Knowledge of MatLab is expected

  • Basic knowledge of technical optics

  • Knowledge of optics design is advantageous

  • Good command of English
