Report from Analytica 2018
 

At Analytica 2018, the leading trade fair for process analytics, biotechnology and laboratory technology, Fraunhofer IAF presented its latest quantum cascade laser technologies for real-time spectroscopy of solids and liquids. (video in German)

Report from Hannover Messe 2018
 

Take a look at the inner workings of packaged goods with us in real time: with our millimeter-wave radar, the invisible becomes visible. At Hannover Fair 2018, Fraunhofer IAF presented high-frequency electronics in the field of radar. (video in German)

 

Report from Hannover Messe 2019

 

FMD goes Hannover Messe: Our millimeter-wave radar was at the Hannover Messe 2019. The W-band radar is able to scan packaged goods in real time and offers a view inside. 

 

Animations on Diamond Devices and Quantum Sensors

Quantum Sensors

Quantum sensors made of diamond with a nitrogen defect enable measurements of smallest magnetic fields at room temperature. This video explains how exactly this works, and how quantum sensors can help detect faulty hard disks or nanoelectronic circuits.

Nanoelectronic Circuits

When characterizing nanoelectronic circuits, a diamond with a nitrogen defect can measure the current flow and ensure the correct function of even the smalles devices.

Diamond tips for the quality control of hard drives
 

Scientists at Fraunhofer IAF are developing highly sensitive diamond sensors, applying electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy. The sensor checks whether a magnetic field exists or not, thereby identifying faulty hard drive areas.

Detecting tiny magnetic fields with diamond sensors
 

In order to identify magnetic fields with diamond sensors, a nitrogen atom is introduced into a tiny diamond tip. Even the smallest magnetic fields can be detected by ESR spectroscopy using the electrons of the nitrogen vacancy center.
