Sensor the size of a nitrogen atom investigates hard drives

With electronics components getting ever smaller, quantum technology presents new opportunities for miniaturization. Soon a new quantum sensor developed by Fraunhofer researchers will be able to measure the tiny magnetic fields of the next generation of hard discs.

Digitization in motor vehicle manufacturing

Pressure to optimize is intense on the floors of motor vehicle manufacturers’ factories: Variance is steadily increasing. Costs have to be contained. Fraunhofer researchers are now using RFID technology to introduce more transparency in motor vehicle manufacturers’ supply chains and manufacturing operations. This reduces time and labor, thus boosting cost effectiveness.

Flexible bonding: hard and soft at the same time

To connect components with each other, gluing is preferred today instead of welding, riveting or using screws. That makes cars, planes and agricultural machines lighter. The requirements placed on the adhesive are high, though: it has to be flexible enough to compensate for stress peaks in the joint zone while still providing a rigid connection in the surface. Fraunhofer researchers have now developed the adhesive „MetAK“, which can be hard and soft at the same time.

Paints and varnishes based on potato starch

If a surface has to be protected against corrosion, in 80 percent of all cases this takes place through coating it with paints or varnishes. When doing so, the proportion of bio-based, environmentally-friendly solutions is extremely small. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP, in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA, are looking to close this gap and are developing a cost-effecti-ve coating based on renewable raw materials. The focus of the research is on potato starch.
