The µ-now! innovation cluster offers a wide range of services in development, analytics and manufacturing in the field of microtechnology.
Micro and Nanotechnology
The large-scale user facility Karlsruhe Nano Micro Facility (KNMF) provides open and in case of public work free access to a set of multimaterial state-of-the-art micro and nanotechnologies.
Synchrotron Light Source
For microfabrication as well as analytics and diagnostics users are guaranteed exclusive and fast access to the synchrotron radiation of the ANKA synchrotron facility.
The Laboratory for Electron Microscopy carries out electron-microscopical service analyses by applying scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and focused-ion-beam microscopie.
In particular in the field of environment and radiation protection, the KIT Safety Management provides various laboratories to measure radioactivity, external radiation exposure or calibration and irradiation services.
The Materials Testing and Research Institute Karlsruhe is an independent approved testing laboratory, inspection body and certification body for construction products. It is also active in research and development for public and private costumers.
