Innovative measuring techniques for individual measuring tasks

Fraunhofer IPM develops and manufactures robust, turnkey measurement systems for the detection and analysis of gases, liquids and solids. The main features of these systems are short measurement times, high precision and reliability, even under extreme conditions. During development, our scientists always keep the customer's specific application in mind.

Our gas sensors and measuring systems are used in exhaust gas measurement technology as well as in food monitoring, leakage measurements, determination of the calorific value of gases or trace gas analysis – to give just a few examples. Our components and systems are also employed in scientific laboratories, for example for materials characterization or as powerful light sources for demanding measurement tasks.
