Optical methods are a key technology for the fast and contact-free detection of materials, surface and volume properties of components and products.
With knowledge about reciprocal effects of light and materials, and considerable expertise in signal processing, the determination of material parameters, micro- and nanostructure-based optical testing as well as systems and process integration, Fraunhofer IKTS supplies test and diagnostic systems for industrial measurement technologies and medical engineering.
Quality assurance of production processes and process monitoring for industrial manufacturing, e.g. in mechanical and plant engineering, in the automotive industry, electrical industry, metal processing, ceramics industry, plastics or packaging industry, and the supply of photonic systems for medical diagnostics, environmental analytics and pollutant sensors are focal points of optical test systems and diagnostics at Fraunhofer IKTS.
Innovation and development are the cornerstones of a promising corporate future. In order to create a competitive edge, Fraunhofer offers tailored options for cooperation, so that small and medium-sized companies can work together in the best possible way. This also allows to utilize development skills at short notice and as needed.
