Semiconductor sensors for biomedical and agricultural applications

Several types of sensors fabricated at the microelectronics laboratory of the Mexico National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics, and Electronics, are introduced and assembled for building systems for biomedical and agricultural applications. The design, fabrication, and characterization of these sensors are introduced, and a description of the systems and their use is demonstrated.  
The Mexico fabrication and characterization capability of several different types of sensors is introduced and its potential collaboration in Latin America is also shown.
