Integration Project – Digitalization of Terahertz Technology
We focus on the experimental qualification of microstructures within the framework of an integration project with the Center for Materials Characterization and Testing (MC). It serves to expand the business areas and promote long term cooperation.
Numerical models and their advanced development are validated on the basis of experimental results to review forecasting reliability. We use the computer to create an optimal microstructure based on the desired material properties, for example, a certain permeability within a specified stiffness.
A 3D-printer creates an exact copy of this computer model with (sub-) micrometer resolution, which is then tested for the desired properties. Until now, only indirect verification of microstructure simulations was possible. The success of our explicit validation of additive microstructures creates customer trust and promises new markets.
