Jörg Amelung received his diploma in physics from the University of Duisburg, Germany, in 1993. In the same year, he joined the Fraunhofer Society in the field microsystem sensor technology. In the following years he was responsible and involved in technology developments in the MEMS and OLED field and founded two OLED dedicated companies. Since 2021 he is deputy institute director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS. Since 2023 he additionally took over the responsibility of the division MEMS Engineering, Manufacturing & Test.
From Concept to Production: Unleashing the Potential of MEMS-based Ultrasound
Virtual Presentation with Dr. Sandro Koch (Group Manager Sensor Micro Modules, Fraunhofer IPMS)
MEMS device advancements are often correlated with the basic development of specific technologies. The Fraunhofer IPMS, renowned for its expertise in MEMS technology development, offers comprehensive development services ranging from initial ideation to qualified processes and transfer towards volume production. Ultrasonic sensors have already found widespread use in numerous application areas, including medical monitoring and object detection. Micromechanical ultrasonic transducers (MUT) based on MEMS, as exemplified by the Fraunhofer IPMS, introduces unique characteristics that enable innovative applications. This presentation will cover the key development aspects, from the initial concept to a stable technology, using this technology development example and is specifically tailored for business executives and development managers.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS in Dresden Germany is your access to know-how, expertise, and modern R&D infrastructure in the field of optical sensors and actuators, integrated circuits, microsystems (MEMS/MOEMS) and nanoelectronics. The Fraunhofer IPMS is one of 76 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the leading organization for applied research in Europe. Relying on more than 30,000 employees, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has a research budget of 2.9 billion euros. Around 70 percent of this sum are generated through industrial commissions and publicly financed research projects.
