Quality control in real time for the use in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industry

25-Jun-2019

To guarantee high quality pharmaceuticals, manufacturers need not only to control the purity and concentration of their own products, but also those of their suppliers. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF have developed a measuring system capable of ...

On-site detection of hazardous substances

05-Jun-2019

Together with partners from research and industry, Fraunhofer IAF has developed a hand-held scanner for hazardous substances within the EU project CHEQUERS. The sensor detects explosive, toxic and other dangerous substances in real time and will help emergency personnel with on-site detections at ...

Sensor the size of a nitrogen atom investigates hard drives

04-Jan-2018

Integrated circuitry is becoming increasingly complex. These days a Pentium processor contains some 30 million transistors. And the magnetic structures found in hard drives measure just 10 to 20 nanometers across – less than a flu virus at 80 to 120 nanometers in diameter. Dimensions are rapidly ...

Radar with 360° vision

06-Apr-2016

Nowadays it is impossible to imagine industry without robots. Safety laser scanners mostly safeguard dangerous areas and protect people from collisions. But optical sensors have their limitations, for instance when plastic surfaces, dust or smoke obstruct their line of sight. Fraunhofer ...

Graphene – from a wonder material to the application in mobile communication

25-Mar-2015

Its theoretical properties made graphene a »wonder material« overnight: it is up to 200 times harder than steel, six times lighter, strong but flexible, environmentally friendly and the world’s thinnest material. Measuring only a single atom layer, about a one hundred-thousandth the diameter of a ...

Sensor network tracks down illegal bomb-making

06-Oct-2014

A network of different sensors is to detect illicit production of explosives and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Traces on doorknobs, in sewage or in the air will be detected by the sensors and the data will be fused in a command center. The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State ...

Diamond as a building material for optical circuits

A revolution in optomechanical materials enables manufacturing of monolithic components

12-Apr-2013

The application of light for information processing opens up a multitude of possibilities. However, to be able to adequately use photons in circuits and sensors, materials need to have particular optical and mechanical properties. Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have ...

Ozone detection

15-Jan-2010

Researchers in Freiburg have developed a highly-sensitive, miniaturized mobile ozone sensor which can be used not only in air, but also in water and in the vicinity of explosive gases. The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF in Freiburg is developing improved chemical ...
