For a joint project, Fischer and the Competence Center Archaeometry – Baden-Wuerttemberg (CCA-BW) of the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen were awarded the prize "Excellent Technology Transfer Neckar-Alb" by the IHK Reutlingen. The prize is awarded in recognition of practice-oriented research that has produced innovative products, technologies and services in cooperation with companies.
The project resulted in a compact, mobile analysis device. Three high-resolution, non-destructive analysis methods are combined in one portable device. For the first time, there is a system that enables the combined, non-destructive, highly spatially resolved chemical and structural analysis of a wide variety of samples. It is perfectly suited for the investigation of archaeological artifacts and art objects on-site. In addition, the instrument is used for industrial applications, for example inline process monitoring. Read more here.
Congratulations also to Meister Strömungstechnik GmbH whose cooperation project with CCA-BW was awarded as well.
