A sensor electrode (se) for a capacitive sensor device is designed such that the width of the sensor electrode decreases towards the center such that the capacity between the sensor electrode and an object (f) with constant distance between the sensor electrode and the object (f) substantially is equal in size for each position of the object (f) relative to the sensor electrode along a longitudinal axis of the sensor electrode. The sensor electrode may consist of a plurality of segments arranged in a strip with decreasing width towards the center of the electrode..

Fuel lances having thermally insulating coating

A method for producing a fuel lance for a burner, in particular for a gas turbine burner, has at least the following steps: creating a fuel lance body having a tip that has a cooling air duct, which opens into an exit opening extending around a longitudinal axis of the fuel lance body, and a nozzle face, which is arranged around the exit opening and has a plurality of fuel nozzles; determining a spatial distribution of a heat input, to which the nozzle face is subjected during operation when a fuel flowing out through the fuel nozzles is burnt; and applying a thermally insulating layer onto the nozzle face in accordance with the spatial distribution of the heat input. A fuel lance is produced with the method.
