LED lamps: less energy, more light

LEDs are perfectly set to become the light source of the future. The tiny diodes offer a whole host of advantages: they are environmentally friendly, contain no harmful substances, consume less energy and – with a lifetime of...[more]


Tiny microchips that keep their cool

An enormous treasure slumbers in the depths of our planet. Temperatures of up to 7000 °C are thought to be present in the Earth’s core. At a depth of 4–6 km it is still 150 °C to over 200 °C. Conventional microelectronics hits...[more]


“SCube” – a more costeffective way of testing biological samples

Automated analysis of blood smears, cytological samples, or tissue sections requires complicated and expensive microscope systems. A uniform platform combining all components has so far been lacking. "SCube" is...[more]


Sniffing out diamonds using X-ray technology

Diamonds are one of the world’s most valuable raw materials. But conventional methods can sometimes damage the precious stone when looking for it in volcanic rock. Researchers at the Development Center for X-Ray Technology EZRT,...[more]


Coming at it from the right angle

Rotation sensors can be used to determine the position of a rotating body relative to an axis. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a new type of sensor: it combines precise measurements with flexible handling and can be...[more]


SEMICON Europa 2014

As of October 2014, SEMICON Europa will take place alternately in Grenoble and Dresden each year - both locations are among the largest clusters for research and development of semiconductors. The aim is to increase worldwide...[more]

Controlling green electricity more precisely with the ASTROSE® radio sensor network

The use of renewable energy places high demands on the power grid because of quick variations in energy flow and the sometimes short-term energy feed into the grid. Fraunhofer researchers, together with a consortium of companies...[more]
