The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI presents the latest developments in sensory and laser technology at the Photonics West. Meet our experts at the joint German booth 4629-28, hall D on February 13-18 in San Francisco, United States.
You find the following highlights at our boot 4629-28, hall D:
Terahertz sensing – World’s most compact THz-transceiver
Terahertz radiation has proven potential as versatile tool for non-destructive testing (NDT). Up to now, the application of THz technologies in industrial environments is severely impeded due to the complexity of today’s THz sensor heads. Especially reflection measurements suffer from bulky and expensive devices. The Fraunhofer HHI presents a novel integrated THz-transceiver, which combines emitter and detector in a single, compact module and allows for measurements under normal incidence for the first time.
Fiber optical 3D shape sensors: Cyberglove – control of robots with nerves out of glass
A new concept for a multifunctional fiber sensor platform for 3D shape sensing is developed by applying a novel femtosecond laser processing technology for high-precision direct writing of Bragg gratings within the core and the cladding of optical fibers. These sensors are exemplary integrated in a Cyberglove, where the movements of each individual finger can be detected, visualized, and simultaneously transferred to a robotic hand.
Integrated Tunable Lasers for THz generation: Dual tunable laser chip at 1.5µm – based on Fraunhofer HHI´s hybrid integration platform PolyBoard
Fraunhofer HHI´s PolyBoard platform enables the hybrid integration in one chip of two Polymer/InP DBR tunable lasers in the 1.5 µm wavelength range. Each laser shows a tuning range of 20 nm (2.4 THz), and continuous sweeps of more than 9 nm (1.1 THz) have been demonstrated. Application fields of such dual optical sources are DWDM optical networks, CW Terahertz systems, microwave photonics, and spectroscopy.

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
