Workshop on the sustainable use of domestic carbon resources
Technology development can contribute significantly to an efficient and environmentally friendly use of domestic carbon resources. This is the result of a two-day workshop with participants from China, Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany, which took place at the invitation of the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in Berlin.
Fraunhofer IMWS awarded as ‘Innovator of the Year’
For the first time, the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in Halle (Saale) has made it into the ranking of the most innovative companies and research institutions in Germany.
Phosphor-filled silicon structures allow for much greater spatial resolution and better contrast behavior than conventionally used phosphors. These innovative structures are being developed at the Fraunhofer Application Center for Inorganic Phosphors in Soest, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer ISIT.
We open up new potential for the use of polymers - for example, as lightweight construction materials for the automotive and aviation industry, in efficient tyres or as plastics made of renewable raw materials.
