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]


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]


Gallium nitride voltage converters achieve efficiency level of 98 %

In order to increase the efficiency of voltage converters and minimize heat losses, researchers at the Fraunhofer IAF have been developing transistors based on the semiconductor gallium nitride. These devices are characterized by...[more]


Simulations to enable novel lithographic patterning techniques

European Research Consortium to Develop Simulation Tools, Materials and Processes to Enable Further Miniaturization of Nano-electronics[more]


Microtechnology saves jet fuel

Back in 1974, Reinhard Mey gave shape to the dream of flying with his lyrics “Above the clouds... freedom must be infinite.” Today, airplanes and flight are part of the fabric of our lives. Aviation enables us to quickly fly to...[more]


Free-flowing traffic on the information highway

Our communication networks have to handle ever greater amounts of data, and are often pushed to the limits of their capacity. Fraunhofer researchers developed what is currently the world’s fastest arbitrary waveform generator...[more]
