Welcome to the Institute of Process Imaging
In July 2023 we have completed our 3 Tesla vertical MRI system installation for image acquisition on TUHH campus. Take a closer look at the technical details and the measuring possibilities.
We pioneer imaging techniques based on magnetic resonance that allow us to decipher the complex transport, thermal, and reaction processes occurring in chemical and bioprocess engineering. With our work, we contribute to provide affordable and clean energy and engineer sustainable production patterns of the 21st century.
