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.

Preimpregnated laminates reinforced with flax fiber create ecological and economic efficiencies
In Poland, the development of a new quality of composites based on flax fiber under the Celpreg project will increase the demand for flax, which will positively affect the economic stimulation of the natural fibers sector.
Fraunhofer IMWS and OCP Group strengthen cooperation
Mainstreaming Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia as raw materials for the fertilizer industry: With this goal in mind, the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in Halle (Saale) and the OCP Group of Morocco, the world's largest exporter of phosphates, will cooperate even more closely in the future.
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.
