Photonic Sensor & Actuator Systems
Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems
- MEMS with integrated diffraction grating, driving mechanism, position detection and optical slits.
In addition to optical MEMS devices, we develop entire photonic systems for industrial customers who would like to integrate photonic sensor and actuator systems made by Fraunhofer IPMS as well as other commerical devices or components in their products. On the customer's behalf we develop modules and systems that comprise all components (optics, hardware, firmware, software) required for operation and utilization.
Our developments address the most versatile markets such as medical technology, biotechnology, automotive engineering, industrial automation or consumer systems. Our services are especially targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). We offer the development of systems for analyzing the interaction between light and material as well as for recording and evaluating of electronic imaging. Our innovations are based on in-house microscanning mirrors or commercially available components.
