A broad field of research: our expertise in musical instruments and gas sensors#
All over the world, musical instruments are deeply rooted in people's cultural traditions. They are part of our cultural heritage, and their preservation and development deserve our attention. For many years, our experts have been dedicated to conducting research on European musical instruments, especially the organ. Collaborative research with other research institutions and a large number of European organ builders focuses on the preservation of their sound, assistance in instrument making and further development through the integration of modern technologies.
Applied research in photoacoustics, on the other hand, is geared towards the development of photoacoustic gas sensors and monitors for use in various fields such as industry, environmental protection, medical diagnostics, biological problems, safety, quality control, etc. In addition, we conduct fundamental research in our laboratories to find ways of improving the capabilities of the photoacoustic detection method and to develop innovative photoacoustic sensors.
