… comes from Anna Ohlander

Ms. Ohlander, what are you working on at the moment? In the work group Polytronic and Multifunctional Systems technologies we are working on roll-to-roll flexible electronics. In this field we develop sensors and other...[more]


Data detectives in double-glazed windows

Double-glazed windows have to withstand everything from blazing sunlight to icy winds and biting cold. And it’s not just the temperature fluctuations themselves that they have to cope with, but also the resulting changes in...[more]


X-ray films in 4D

Ultra-fast computer tomography can now be used to take and analyze three-dimensional shots of a workpiece or integrated circuitry within just a few seconds. This could make it possible to link work steps in the areas of...[more]


Wider range for electric cars

Electric cars will, in the future, make driving better for the environment. One weakness of their drive systems, however, remains the efficiency and safety of the battery systems. The energy storage devices currently used cannot...[more]


RFID sensors protect Rotterdam quay wall

Day after day, saline sea water eats into the concrete of the quay wall. These are the most difficult conditions that steel-reinforced concrete has to withstand. The salt, in the form of salt ions, penetrates the alkaline...[more]


Taking a close look, whatever the scale

They can scan entire shipping containers just as easily as tiny biological samples: at the Development Center for X-Ray Technology, Fraunhofer researchers are working with both the largest and the smallest CT scanner in the world.[more]


95 % less lubricant

The less lubricant used in manufacturing, the better it is for the environment, for production costs, and not least for occupational safety as well. The trend is therefore towards micro-lubrication. Up to now, metering system...[more]
