Graphene is considered a miracle material: stronger but lighter than steel, flexible, environmentally friendly, and the world’s thinnest material. Researchers at Fraunhofer IAF now plan to produce nearly massless electrodes based on graphene. These are to be used in bandpass filters of smartphones and will improve signal...

Glass fibers are used for vein sclerotherapy in a minimally invasive procedure. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a laser-processing technology that is capable of automated series production of these fibers for the first time. What’s more, they can be modeled much more finely than before. This also opens up applications in...

2015 is the United Nations’ “International Year of Light.” For many Fraunhofer institutes, light is a central focal point of research. This is because light is what allows us to see. Light transports information. Light carries energy. Light is a universal tool in science and industry. With their research work, Fraunhofer...

Mixed-signal systems play an essential role in mobile applications, but their design is challenging. Hence time consuming and thus expensive simulations are often used to analyze the dynamic behavior. An Event-Driven approach, investigated at the Fraunhofer ENAS, unifies very accurate and fast simulations to optimize the...

Steel is an important material in vehicle and machinery construction. Large quantities of offcuts and scraps are left over from raw production, such as from rolling it into strip steel. The radar developed by Fraunhofer researchers measures the width of the strip during fabrication to an accuracy of micrometers and helps to...
