RadarGlass: Functional thin-film structures for integrated radar sensors

It is only an inconspicuous piece of paper, but it is an important milestone for autonomous driving: Fraunhofer ILT, the Fraunhofer FEP and RWTH Aachen University have developed acoating process chain that enables radar sensors to be integrated in car headlights.

 

Laser Goes Green: Efficiently Recycling Valuable Materials from Electronic Devices

The technologies developed in the ADIR project measures and analyzes the end-of-life electronics in the first instance and then selectively disassembles valuable components to gain novel, highly enriched sorting fractions.

 

Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants.

 

Directly-cooled electric motor made from polymer materials

Researchers at the Fraunhofer ICT are working with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to develop a new cooling concept that will enable fiber-reinforced polymers to be used as motor housing materials. The new concept also significantly increases the power density and efficiency of the motor compared to the state of the art.
