Ultrasound technologies in vehicles of all kinds and the conceptual design of mobile laboratories are core competencies of the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT. The working areas “Technical Ultrasound” and “Laboratory Technology” present their competences exhibiting a model of a Pick-Up with a laboratory van body at IAA 2015.
The use of ultrasound in vehicles of all kinds is one of the focuses of the department of ”Technical Ultrasound“ at the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT. Sensors and systems are developed for distance monitoring and obstacle detection (parking assistant), for flow metering (exhaust), for level metering and fuel characterization (tank) as well as for interior monitoring (burglary prevention).
Furthermore, another core competence of the Fraunhofer IBMT is the conceptual design of mobile laboratories. The whole service from conceptual design to consulting and support during implementation to operating of the laboratory is offered by the business area “Laboratory Technology”.
“Technical Ultrasound” and “Laboratory Technology” present their competences exhibiting a model of a Pick-Up with a laboratory van body.
Since more than 30 years the department of “Technical Ultrasound” deals with the use of ultrasound in different fields of application. From simulation-based concept to ready-to-go into production, the whole spectrum of sensor, electronic and software development is offered. In automotive applications, ultrasound systems for cars and trucks are developed. The applications range from low-cost units for the bumper (parking assistant) to complex units for level metering in hydrogen tanks (fuel cell).
Furthermore, Fraunhofer IBMT is strongly involved in the field of mobile laboratories since 2005. Starting with the design and development of units for its own use, this field of work matured over the last decade within several projects.
Today, Fraunhofer IBMT is mainly working in the area of consulting and conceptual design of mobile analytical and medical solutions for third parties. Together with partners from the network “Labor der Zukunft”, Fraunhofer IBMT offers solutions made to measure including selection of suitable instruments and manufacturers. Fraunhofer IBMT is also operating a mobile BSL-2 unit for the German environmental specimen bank ESB since 2013.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
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...
