3D measuring laboratory

3-dimensional measurements using millimeter waves

Fraunhofer IAF has a robot measuring station at its disposal where our scientists can also carry out measurements for customers or partners.

Both high-frequency sensors and optical sensors can be attached to the flexible robot arm and thus reliably inspect devices from different angles and distances. The measuring station can be adapted according to the application scenario.

Current examples of the application are:

Antenna measurement

Determination of radiation characteristics of antennas from 60 GHz to 300 GHz

Material measurements 

  • surface scans
  • Tomographic images of dielectric objects

Penetration depth and measurement resolution may vary depending on selected frequency range and the material of the measurement object.
