- New material to push the boundaries of silicon-based electronics (Fraunhofer IAF)
Scandium aluminum nitride (ScAlN), is being used in the recently launched project “Power Electronics 2020+” to develop more efficient power electronic systems and to pave the way for the next generation of electronics. This is because electronics based on silicon (Si), which has so far dominated the market, will no longer be able to meet increasing industrial demands in the foreseeable future.
- Breakthrough in magnetic resonance imaging of the heart (Fraunhofer IAF)
Cardiovascular diseases are the number-one cause of death globally. To date, several areas of significant unmet needs remain unaddressed. The MetaboliQs project combines diamond-based quantum sensor technology and medical imaging to advance personalized diagnostics.
- Acoustic monitoring of machines and systems (Fraunhofer IZFP)
Incorrectly installed system components can lead to system failure. Even inspections cannot always reveal these errors to the technicians. Our solution is AcoustiX – a “listening” sensor system developed by Fraunhofer IZFP.
