Industrial and Medical Imaging

Industrial and medical image processing deals with research and development tasks from the industrial environment as well as with issues relating to image-based measurement technology in medical technology. The main focus in industrial image processing is on the development of new or optimized concepts and methods for optical quality control in production processes with difficult and task-specific boundary conditions. For many years, the working group has been researching the characterization of so-called riblets, a groove-like fine structure of surfaces to reduce air resistance. The task areas are the measurement of the wear and tear of these structures or the large-scale recording of the surface to derive key figures. Various measuring devices are used and also developed in the context of research projects. This includes confocal microscopy, light section technology and also a new type of 3D electron microscopy.

In medical technology, new interaction and control methods are currently being developed to optimize operating room equipment. The aim is to increase efficiency and ergonomics and, in particular, to avoid infections. In the field of microsystems, the focus is on the development and integration of micro-optical and micromechanical components for the further development and optimization of a miniaturized spectrometer (microspectrometer). In addition to improving the process, the goals include reducing energy consumption and equipment costs. This microspectrometer should be used in medical technology, bioanalytics and environmental technology.
