FRAUNHOFER INSTITUTE FOR APPLIED OPTICS AND PRECISION ENGINEERING (IOF)
The main topic of research and development at Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering (IOF) is optical system technology with the objective of controlling light – from its generation, guidance and manipulation to its ultimate application in various markets as information and communication, illumination, transport and traffic, production, life sciences, medical technology, astronomy and aerospace, pollution conservation and security.
Focused research in the fields of:
       Multi-functional optical coatings
       Characterization of surfaces and coatings
       Micro- and nano-structure technology for optics
       Ultra-precision manufacturing
       Micro-optical imaging systems
       Optics for beam shaping of semiconductor light sources
       Beam guiding optics
       Free form optics
       Fiber lasers and their application
       Optical measurement systems and sensors
       Systems for optics characterization
       Fine mechanical precision systems
       Procedures of optics assembly.
In the business area of optical instrumentation, the competencies cover development, manufacturing and assembly of optical components and systems. Examples of the successful participation of Fraunhofer IOF in spectrometer and telescope projects for space and ground based applications are JWST, BepiColombo,  EnMAP, Sentinel-4, LBT, VLT. The Fraunhofer IOF is a competent partner to local, national and international industries and a contractor to the public sector in the field of optics and photonics.
