Welcome to the Institute of Process Imaging

We pioneer magnetic resonance techniques that allow us to decipher the complex transport and reaction processes occuring in chemical engineering applications. With our work, we contribute to provide affordable and clean energy and engineer sustainable production patterns of the 21st century.
