Flexible and ultra-thin magnetic field sensorics (pdf)

The flexible and ultra-thin (150 µm) magnetic field sensorics - a combination of polymeric membranes with highly sensitive metallic magnetic field sensors - can be bent or twisted without sacrificing the sensor’s performance. Flexible sensorics can be applied in electrical machines and magnetic bearing systems to perform real time measurements of the magnetic flux density, which allows to control the position of the rotor in magnetic bearings or to monitor the performance of electrical motors. This is relevant to improve the performance of high-precision machining tools based on active magnetic bearing systems and to optimize electrical motors for eMobility (eCars and eBikes).

Magnetic Force Microscopy sensor based on Fe-filled carbon nanotubes (pdf)

This new kind of magnetic force microscopy (MFM) sensor is based on an iron filled carbon nanotube and offers high spatial resolution, high magnetic stability and a monopole-like stray field characteristic that makes it suitable for straightforward quantitative MFM. Furthermore, due to the high mechanical stability of the carbon shell, it offers an increased damage resistance and shelf life compared to conventional MFM sensors.

Hydrogen calibration sample for elementary analysis (pdf)

The massive vacuum-tight samples basing on mixtures of Cu and TiH2 powders are suitable solid-state calibration samples for the element hydrogen (H), which can be used in quantitative elemental analysis, such as glow-discharge spectroscopy and carrier gas hot extraction. The H concentration can be varied between 0.1 and 1.5 m% with an accuracy of 5%.

Micro- and nanostructural analysis (pdf)

The IFW Dresden offers the most modern scientific equipment for material characterization and analysis. Methods of structural analysis in the nano- and micrometer range are electron microscopy, elemental analysis and further preparation and analysis options.

Melting, molding- and rapid cooling technologies (pdf)

The selective modification of specific properties of alloys requires the application of special melting and molding technologies and related engineering processes. The IFW Dresden possesses extensive equipment and tools that allow for the realization of different melting and casting processes for material development on laboratory scale - in particular for the production of rapidly solidified multicomponent alloys.
