Electronic Sensor Platform (ESP)


ESP is a signal conditioning platform for converting trapped charges into a voltage signal. Charges are trapped on the surface by a functional material applied by the user, such as graphene, biomolecules, or quantum dots. The platform is useful for the implementation of solid-state high-performance detectors.
