- #WeKnowHow: Certainty in just 15 minutes – graphene oxide based rapid test for infection detection
Researchers at Fraunhofer IZM and its project partners are developing a handy sensor platform based on graphene oxide. This enables the detection of acute infections such as sepsis or antibodies against the corona virus within minutes.
- Machine-Close-up: Worldwide unique measurement system (Research Fab Microelectronics Germany)
At the FMD member institute Leibniz FBH, a measurement system with customized broadband microwave down converters by Keysight Technologies has been brought into operation. Thus, all key components for a novel 5G Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system are available at the institute.
- GESTRA: The near-earth orbit always “in sight” (Fraunhofer FHR)
In order to monitor the near-Earth orbit, a phased array radar with high beam agility is required. In Autumn 2020, researchers from Fraunhofer FHR officially handed over the semi-mobile space surveillance radar GESTRA to the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
