From the plasma wind tunnel to the international space station - Miniaturised solid electrolyte sensor developments and applications

Stefanos Fasoulas

Professur für Raumfahrtsysteme und Raumfahrtnutzung
TU Dresden
  Germany  






The presentation shall give an overview about the developments of different solid electrolyte gas sensors for both, space and terrestrial applications. Special emphasis will be laid to the recently performed space experiment "FIPEX on ISS" for the measurement of the residual Earth atmosphere in about 300-400 km altitude. Further developments for medical and environmental control applications will also be introduced. Finally, sensor production and design issues, for which nanomaterials and -techniques become more and more important, are addressed.

Brief Bio:

Since 1999, Stefanos Fasoulas is Professor for Space Systems and Space Utilization and since 2006 Director of the Institute for Aerospace Engineering, TU Dresden. He studied at the University of Stuttgart with the focus on statics and dynamics and space systems, receiving a diploma degree in aerospace engineering. He received the title \u201cDr.-Ing.\u201d (Doctor of Engineering Sciences) at the University of Stuttgart, for the thesis \u201cExperimental and Theoretical Investigation of a High-Enthalpy Nitrogen Flow for Re-entry Simulation\u201d. His major research interests comprise sensor developments for space and ground-based applications, energy systems for space applications, Re-entry simulation in theory and experiment, and space systems analysis, especially systems with synergetic potential.
