Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Sensor Technology was established in 2008. It focus on sensor-based theory, sensors design, sensors performance test, multi-sensor information fusion technology, integrated automation technology. Now, rich research fruits have been achieved on novel temperature and strain photonic crystal fiber sensor, optical fiber surface plasma resonance sensor, fiber Raman sensor, integrated practical fiber pressure and vibration sensor and networks, gas sensor integrated test system, ultra sensitive nano material gas sensor and thermoelectric thin film. A number of high quality papers and national invention patents have published or authorized, some of which has reached the leading level on domestic.
The laboratory has the first-class experimental conditions and test equipment including femtosecond lasers, optical spectroscopy analyzers, film coating machines, optical microscopes, scanning electron microscope, fiber parameter and sensor test system and other large imported equipment, the total value of fixed assets worth about 26 million Yuan. The laboratory has a very strong research team, consists of 6 senior title staffs, 11 vice-senior title staffs, and 23 PhD holders. So far, the laboratory undertakes more than 150 research projects with a total contract amount of more than 53 million Yuan. Up to now, it has applied 66 national invention patents, 48 of which have been authorized. More than 284 papers are published, of which 175 papers are SCI/EI indexed. In 2009, the laboratory wined Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Award and wined the third prize of Guangdong Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award in 2010. For now, 5 post-doctoral and 81 PhD and MS graduates are educated.
