  • Publication number: 20180128947
    Abstract: Defined nanoparticle cluster arrays (NCAs) with dimensions up to 25.4 ?m square are fabricated on a 10 nm gold film using template guided self-assembly. Structural parameters are precisely controlled, allowing systematic variation of the number of nanoparticles in the clusters (n) and edge to edge separation (?) between 1<n<20 and 50 nm???1000 nm, respectively. Rayleigh scattering spectra and surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) signal intensities as functions of n and ? reveal direct near-field coupling between the particles within individual clusters, whose strength increases with cluster size (n) until it saturates at around n=4. Strong near-field interactions between clusters significantly affects the SERS signal enhancement for edge-to-edge separations ?<200 nm. The NCAs support multiscale signal enhancement from simultaneous inter- and intra-cluster coupling and |E|-field enhancement. Applications include SERS-based spectral identification of bacteria.

  • Patent number: 9046428
    Abstract: A pressure detection module of a pressure sensor device includes a receptacle part for receiving a carrier substrate. The carrier substrate is located on a first side with a pressure detection unit, and is inserted into the receptacle part with a second side facing away from the first side. The carrier substrate is fixed with its second side on a base of a receptacle groove. In order to construct the pressure detection module as small as possible, and to manufacture it in a cost-effective way, the receptacle part, the receptacle groove and a peripheral flange around the receptacle groove are, for example, provided with a plate-shaped design. The base has a contacting opening, through which contact surfaces of the carrier substrate, which are exposed at the contacting opening, are electrically contactable.

  • Patent number: 9013689
    Abstract: Defined nanoparticle cluster arrays (NCAs) with total lateral dimensions of up to 25.4 ?m by 25.4 ?m have been fabricated on top of a 10 nm thin gold film using template guided self-assembly. This approach provides precise control of the structural parameters in the arrays allowing a systematic variation of the average number of nanoparticles in the clusters (n) and the edge to edge separation (?) between 1<n<20 and 50 nm???1000 nm, respectively. Investigations of the Rayleigh scattering spectra and surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) signal intensities as a function of n and ? reveal direct near-field coupling between the particles within individual clusters, whose strength increases with the cluster size (n) until it saturates at around n=4. Our analysis shows that strong near-field interactions between individual clusters significantly affects the SERS signal enhancement for edge-to-edge separations ?<200 nm.

  • Patent number: 8908402
    Abstract: A modular high-frequency converter includes submodules, each having an input-side half bridge and a DC link circuit with a DC link capacitance connected in parallel to the half bridge. A DC link circuit voltage drop across the DC link capacitance of each submodule is controlled to a target voltage by adjusting a duty cycle with a closed-loop control structure having a pilot control and a downstream closed-loop error control. Within the framework of the pilot control, a target value for each duty cycle and a target value for the supply current are determined, using a mathematical model of the converter, based on the load-side output currents flowing out of the DC link voltage circuits and on target values of the DC link circuit voltages. Switch position parameters, which map the effect of the switch positions of the input-side half bridges, are each replaced by an associated duty cycle.
