    Research despite and because of Corona

    May 04, 2020

    It is not an easy balancing act that researchers currently have to perform: The corona pandemic can only be contained by shutting down personal contacts - this also applies to everyday working life. On the other hand, some research activities are especially important now to support doctors, nurses and authorities in their work. Fraunhofer EMFT is facing this challenge for example in the development of thermopile sensors by Heimann GmbH. Important process steps are performed in the clean room of the Munich institute.
