The Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM develops tailor-made measuring techniques, systems and materials for industry. Many years of experience with optical technologies and functional materials form the basis for high-tech solutions in the fields of production control, materials characterization and testing, object and shape detection, gas and process technology as well as functional materials and systems.
Using caloric materials, environmentally friendly and efficient cooling systems and heat pumps can be realized. Therefore these materials have the potential to revolutionize future cooling technology.
Fraunhofer IPM demonstrates a new, patented system concept, with which the technological advantages of caloric cooling are transferred to the application.
