This is the official corporate video of the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in Halle, Germany.
New rooms will provide laboratories, offices, seminar and meeting rooms. Construction starts this spring.
At the Fraunhofer CSP, researchers want to integrate photovoltaics into a carbon concrete composites.

Together with partners, the Fraunhofer IMWS has developed a non-toxic paint that prevents vessels from marine fouling. That means less fuel consumption and prevents pollution.

In some of the white LEDs available commercially, the phosphor is gradually damaged by heat generated by high operating currents. The Fraunhofer AWZ is finding out how to prevent this.

We analyze the properties of microelectronics and microsystem technology components and thus increase the reliability and performance, for example, of computer chips and sensors.
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.
How good are the materials used in medical engineering and biotechnology? How can cosmetic care products be improved? What can materials made from natural materials achieve? We find out.
We use our top expertise to improve technology, from wafer manufacture to module production. We develop new materials to make photovoltaics more cost effective, more efficient and more reliable.
We work on the latest generation of lighting technology and improve the reliability, efficiency and color stability of LEDs.
Get to know the institute through our videos and photo galleries.
