The Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM develops tailor-made measuring techniques and systems for industry. Many years of experience with optical technologies form the basis for high-tech solutions in the fields of production control, object and shape detection, gas and process technology.
Exploring the potential of different quantum systems for sensing applications in our business areas is one of our focus topics: Entangled photon pairs offer new possibilities for infrared spectroscopic analysis, for example with the Quantum Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer developed by IPM. The high sensitivity of optically pumped magnetometers is utilized in novel methods for material analysis and process control.
