Fraunhofer-Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering

The Fraun­ho­fer IOF in coope­ra­tion with the fo+ part­ners deve­lops solu­ti­ons for free form optics from com­pon­ents to opti­cal systems.
The insti­tute con­ducts appli­ca­tion-ori­en­ted rese­arch in the field of opti­cal sys­tems engi­nee­ring on behalf of its cli­ents in indus­try and within publicly-fun­ded col­la­bo­ra­tive pro­jects. The field of opti­cal sys­tem engi­nee­ring enables the step from spe­ci­fic opti­cal, mecha­ni­cal and elec­tro­nic com­pon­ents to opti­cal, opto-mecha­ni­cal and opto-elec­tro­nic modu­les and sys­tems with com­plex func­tion­a­li­ties. The objec­tive is to con­trol light, from its gene­ra­tion to its application.
Cli­ents of Fraun­ho­fer IOF come from the infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, light­ing, trans­port, pro­duc­tion, life sci­en­ces, food, medi­cal tech­no­logy, envi­ron­men­tal and safety engi­nee­ring mar­kets. The Fraun­ho­fer IOF pro­vi­des the entire pro­cess chain, start­ing from sys­tem design to manu­fac­ture of pro­to­type opti­cal, opto-mecha­ni­cal and opto-elec­tro­nic systems.
