Learn in the laboratory - explore and confirm in the field!

Feedback from experienced microsensor customers tells us that presenting in situ data is impressing to readers and reviewers. However, obtaining data in the field is a challenging task that demands hard effort and patience. 

Click on the PDF link to the right and read an application note that builds upon Ass. Prof. Ole Pedersen from Copenhagen University experience with microsensor experiments that starts under controlled settings in the laboratory. When the research team has a good understanding of the mechanism described in the lab, they repeat the measurements in the field to confirm that the mechanism also applies in situ
