Fraunhofer Application Center for Optical Metrology and Surface Technologies (AZOM)
The Fraunhofer AZOM bridges the gap between the research expertise of Fraunhofer IWS and the West Saxon University of Applied Sciences Zwickau. The partners address the requirements of the regional economy by implementing the latest research approaches in optical metrology, image processing and biophotonics.
The scientists aim to quickly and directly transfer research results into application-specific solutions for industrial processes. The portfolio includes the characterization of almost all surface properties using state-of-the-art equipment from established manufacturers. In addition, AZOM offers developments for individual challenges which cannot be solved using standard commercial technology.
