Gas and particle characterization

In the field of gas analysis our scientists have focuses on the multi gas analysis and the trace gas detection. The evaluation of chemical processes, gas atmospheres and the permeation-, resp. breakthrough behavior of foils and porous materials lead to the identification and to the quantitative analysis of materials and material compounds.


Application of porous materials

The separation of trace components from gases can be realized by an adsorptive gas cleaning process in a very cost-efficient way. Frequently porous materials, such as activated carbon, zeolites or novel hybrid materials (MOFs), are used for this process.

Characterization of porous materials

The Fraunhofer IWS engineers have developed a measuring technology, which measures up to 12 samples in parallel and which determines the gas adsorption capability and specific surface.
