The Ebola fever and other diseases are highly dangerous and transferred by sick people or contaminated objects. In our global world airplanes are one way to export this virus all over the world.
Africa for instance has around 60 airports so it’s an important international challenge to prevent sick people flying. For this purpose you can use Optris’s fever inspection system.
Virus epidemics like the Swine influenza in 2009/2010 and the Ebola virus disease in 2014 created a worldwide demand for suitable screening techniques allowing a fast non contact detection of travellers with potential fever.
The installation of the whole system including the infrared camera and its extensive software package is very easy. Also it can be re-located and set up in minimum time. The system is password-protected to prevent unauthorised changes.
Because of a reference radiator built into the infrared camera there’s an automatic and constant IR calibration of the camera itself. The temperature resolution of 0.1°C detects the smallest of temperature variances.
The system works discreetly. The software singles out the people whose skin temperature exceeds the predefined value. The visual alarm gives airport employees the possibility to identify and isolate suspects from their co-travellers so that a medical examination can be done discreetly.
If necessary the software offers the possibility to take automatically IR image snapshots when a person trips the alarm.
The system is available ex stock and can be delivered within one week. Scope of supply: USB camera incl. 1 lens, USB cable (1 m), table tripod,software package optris PI Connect, aluminum case. Price from 2,690 Euro including software.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
Broadband rotational spectroscopy unravels structural reshaping of isolated molecules in the gas phase to accommodate water

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
