High-sensitive linear and angular seismic sensors
based on innovative molecular-electronic technology

"R-sensors" LLC (Moscow region, Russia) in cooperation with The Center for Molecular Electronics of The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) has developed an original technology for manufacturing high-performing seismometers and various seismic sensors based on the innovative physical principles of the molecular-electronic (electrochemical) signal transformation.

The main advantages of the molecular-electronic instruments are high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. The efficiency of the signal transformation by means of a MET sensor is still unreachable by commonly used technologies such as MEMS.

The molecular-electronic sensors and seismometers do not have high-priced fragile and wearing out mechanical parts, which ensures the greatest reliability. The instruments are simple in use, resistant to severe environment and transportation vibrations and price-effective.

The molecular-electronic technology gives rise to production of highly sensitive inertial sensors for both linear and rotational motion, which can be used in many application fields - seismology, engineering geophysics, industrial vibration measurements, oil-drilling monitoring, intruder alarm systems, medical applications and so on.

Broadband and short-period seismometers

Compact seismic sensors: active geophones and seismic accelerometer

Power efficient, easy to install and highly durable. Don't require special handling during transportation and installation. Borehole, OBS and off-shore versions are available.

High gain and wider passband. Exceptionally small and light. Able to work under any tilts. Three and one-component versions.

High gain rotational sensors

Linear and angular micro- and ultra-compact sensors

Rotational sensors introduces new approaches in engineering geophysics, rotational seismology, seismic monitoring of high-rise buildings and constructions.

These high-performance ultra-compact size molecular-electronic sensors exceed MEMS in noise performance and other parameters. The sensors can be used in various industrial, scientific and medical applications.


Based on the molecular-electronic technology, a series of sensors which are different in dimensions, sensitivity, frequency range and noise level have been developed.

We sell our products worldwide including the United States, Europe, Turkey, India, China, South-East Asia and Latin America.

We're continuously moving further in studying the physical processes of charge transfer and signal transformation which take place in molecular-electronic transducers. We are improving the molecular-electronic technique and designing the new types of motion sensors taking advantage of the latest nano-technologies.

We are open for commercial and scientific cooperation with all interested companies and scientific organizations.
