Hugo Geiger Prize 2013 for ultra-thin microscope

René Berlich was awarded this year's Hugo Geiger Prize for outstanding research within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. He is recognized for the result of his master thesis at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering. He developed an integrated illumination module for ultra compact fluorescent microscopes and at the same time he was able to increase the resolution of these microscopes. The principle of the ultra thin microscope is inspired by a natural antetype, the eyes of certain insects and spiders. Compared to conventional fluorescence microscopes with only one lens, the ultra-thin microscope has a much larger field of view and allows the parallel readout of a large number of samples without scanning. The parallel investigation of hundreds of specimens also saves time and money and is a crucial step towards the automation of biomedical laboratory tests.

The first international Symposium on Microoptical Imaging and Projection
from November 27 - 29 was a success.

An increasing number of innovative optical systems using microoptics as enabling technology are currently going to market. This field is very competitive in areas like automotive industries but especially in consumer applications. Optoelectronics, microoptics and microelectronics are merging. More than 100 scientists and experts from different institutions discussed the possibility of interdisciplinary collaboration to raise new synergetic effects in the field of microoptical imaging and projection.

Twenty20 - Partnership for Innovation
Facetvision and Fraunhofer IOF have submitted an application for the economic development program "Twenty20 - Partnership for Innovation". As a part of the consortium "3D Sensation" facetvision will develop three-dimensional recording and playback devices. Potential applications are spatial recognition of surroundings used by autonomous driving, 3D-gesture recognition for human-machine-interaction, 3D-scenes and peoplmedia/bilder/News/3D-Reihe.jpge recognition for novel security and mobility concepts. Further applications can be the spatial recognition of 3D-shapes for highly-automated production processes and the plenoptic camera.
