Research and development

Scientific and technical work at the Fraunhofer Center MEOS is organized in five subject areas, that cover different aspects of biomedicine. The Fraunhofer institutes linked to the Fraunhofer Center bring in their competencies for the technology platforms. Fraunhofer IPMS is working on M(O)EMS components and signal processing. Required optical concepts, elements and system integration including image analysis are delivered by Fraunhofer IOF. Expertise in biomedical applications which includes specifications, requirements and testing comes from Fraunhofer IZI.

Current research at Fraunhofer Center MEOS covers the following topics:


Components and subsystems for optical beam guidance and manipulation


Multimodal data fusion and analysis


Non-invasive diagnostics and screening


System design and integration of photonic, mechanical and fluidic platforms
