Sensing and Imaging

Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems

Numerous industrial applications, in medicine for example, have special requirements for electronic image acquisition that conventional cameras are not able to fulfill. This pertains for one to the size of the system, e.g. for use in endoscopy, and also to the inclusion of additional data, such as depth-resolved information.

Fraunhofer IPMS-developed systems specially use Institute-developed and manufactured micro scanning mirrors for the fulfillment of these needs. Typical systems include ultra-compact endoscope heads for endomicroscopy, depth-resolved laser-scanning microscopes, laser range finders, and modules for optical room monitoring.
