How can the capacity of solid-state batteries be physically predicted? How can autonomous driving be made safer by a new frequency range that radar can use to measure distances? How can errors and risks be detected and better understood at an earlier stage when developing mechanical products? How can the electronics of a battery charger be made more efficient and perform better with new types of semi-conductor materials?
Dr. Philipp Braun, Dr. Akanksha Bhutani, Dr Bartosz Gladysz and Matthias Luh were awarded the Carl-Freudenberg-Prize for their scientific work that looked at these questions by Professor Albert Albers, Chair of the Institute of Product Engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Dr. Julia Kubasch, Head of Scientific Networks at the Freudenberg Technology Innovation Corporate Function. The jury, under the direction of Professor Albers, honored the work of the four scientists. The prize is awarded every two years.
