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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
