Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Thermal aspects of design and fabrication of sensor structures based on thermally isolated heater filaments [1] were investigated with special attention to their dynamic properties. Thermal engineering was aided by high performance simulation methods, such as finite element modelling (COSMOS) and thermal equivalent circuit simulation using successive network reduction method (SUNRED). The detailed static and dynamic thermal behaviour of the structure was experimentally characterised applying high resolution thermography system of the Thermosensorik GmbH and termal transient tester (T3Ster) of the MicReD Ltd.
