Assessing and Controlling Dynamic Local Process Conditions in Microreactors via Novel Integrated Microsensors" (ProMiSe)

Both the sensors and microfluidic systems must withstand harsh chemical and thermical conditions, and thus the choice of materials and manufacturing process must be carefully be considered in the system design. This is an interdisciplinary research and development task, which demands expertise in micromachining, chemistry and process engineering. The research unit ProMiSe works on the development of miniaturized sensors and their integration in microreactors. A larger understanding of the dynamics of local processes in such systems is to be achieved by means of experimental analysis and precise modeling. These insights will eventually be instrumental in improving the control over processes to achieve higher product quality, increase the output, etc. The research is focused on evaporation processes, multiphase catalysis, photochemistry and nanoparticle synthesis.

ProMiSe consists of 10 research teams from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Freiburg and is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
