The Fraunhofer IPMS explores completely new light technology application fields with miniaturized solutions. The focus is on diverse applications entering industrial production as well as consumer goods applications – in information, medical, and environmental technologies, as well as safety technology or in the automobile supply industry; really almost every sphere of life.

Diversity of application areas

Microscanner for light deflection for bar code recognition systems or spectrometers, mirror arrays for photolithography or adaptive optics, miniature projectors for image and video content, the measuring and monitoring of vital bodily functions with transtelephonic data transmission. These are only a few examples of the many possible applications.
