  • New type of ventilator for virus-free air
    The danger of becoming infected with the coronavirus is especially high in enclosed spaces. This is because aerosols - which play a key role in the transmission of COVID-19 - increase the concentra...


  • New agents to fight multidrug-resistant germs
    Resistance to antibiotics is on the rise worldwide. Fraunhofer scientists have joined forces with partners in the Phage4Cure project to explore alternatives to antibiotics. One objective is to vanq...
  • New approach to sustainable lithium
    The demand for lithium is rapidly growing, but Europe's conventional resources are limited. Connecting European circular economy to global networks, the EIT RawMaterials Innovation Community and le...
  • Detection of cancer from exhaled breath
    The air we exhale contains information that can assist with the diagnosis of disease. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Project Hub for Microelectronic and Optical Systems for Biomedicine MEOS are now ...






  • 1000 km range thanks to a new battery concept
    You cannot get far today with electric cars. One reason is that the batteries require a lot of space. Fraunhofer scientists are stacking large cells on top of one another. This provides vehicles wi...
  • A way out of the chromium ban
    To prevent components from becoming corroded or worn, they are often coated using hexavalent chromium. Starting in September of 2017, though, this will only be permitted with exceptions. The extrem...
  • Making fluorescent chips using an inkjet printer
    Want to quickly test blood for pathogens? Or food for toxins? In the future, you will be able to do just that from the comfort of your own home using a small fluorescent chip and your smartphone. T...


  • Microreactor replaces animal tests
    Researchers all over Europe are working on alternatives to animal testing that can be used to evaluate the adverse side-effects of medications. But many of these test methods still present problems...
  • Terahertz technology reaches industrial maturity
    Terahertz is a new technology in which nondestructive testing of components and surfaces is possible. Until now, these devices and, in particular, the sensor heads have been expensive and unwieldy....
  • New process for eco-friendly phosphorus recovery
    Demand in agriculture for phosphate-based fertilizers is growing steadily. At the same time, the purity of reservoirs is declining, which means extracting and preparing phosphorus is getting more d...
  • Power amplifiers for 5G made of gallium nitride

  • Better treatment of food allergies
    Food allergies have been on the increase for years. There is currently only one solution for patients: avoid allergy-triggering products. Fraunhofer researchers are making an important contribution...
  • Manufacturing of high-quality plastics from terpenes
    Even if fossil resources got much cheaper in the last years there are big efforts to replace standard plastics by substances made from renewable resources. A reduced consump tion of fossil resource...


  • Beer, milk and other beverages in bacteria quick test
    To guarantee a high quality of their beer, breweries monitor the production process very closely. With a new polymer powder, this monitoring will be able to be faster and simpler in the future. Man...
  • Mini synthetic organism instead of test animals
    In medical research, animal-based experiments have thus far been a necessary evil. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a highly promising alternative, however: They are developing a mini-organism...
  • Predicting pesticide loads more accurately
