Welcome to !

The research focus of the Bremen Institute for Metrology, Automation and Quality Science (BIMAQ) is the holistic investigation of optical measurement systems, which includes the design, realization, modelling, characterization and, finally, the application of novel measurement techniques. By applying a rigorous system-based analysis of the measurement systems, the limits of measurability and the respective uncertainty principles are investigated in order to determine and to surpass the limits of state-of-the-art approaches. Beyond pure measurement tasks, automation aspects and the application of quality controls is investigated as well. However, the core competence of BIMAQ is measurement system engineering, which is a key discipline for solving technical and overall social challenges.


When the Airflow Suddenly Changes

It remains invisible to the naked eye, but with the right technologies and equipment, you can track the airflows on a spinning wind turbine in real time. The latest developments at Professor Andreas Fischer’s institute at the University of Bremen make it possible.

Prof. Fischer receives ERC grant

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded Prof. Fischer a Consolidator Grant for the investigation of a groundbreaking research approach. This will enable him to conduct research over a period of 5 years with an interdisciplinary research team to overcome current limits of optical geometry measurements and build the foundation for a new class of measurement instruments.
