Foundation of the KIT NanoMicro Center may well be considered the prerequisite for the development of a center of excellence in micro and nanotechnologies in Europe. Fundamental research of the KIT NanoMicro Center provides for a comprehensive knowledge base in nanotechnology and microsystems engineering.

On this basis, the Center bridges the gap to technical implementation and marketable products. The focus is on nanobiology as well as on the setup of infrastructure facilities to support the work of internal and external users. For this purpose, the KIT NanoMicro Center links the expertise of scientists across disciplines.

Work of the KIT NanoMicro Center is organized in eight topics:

  • Nanoscale and Microscale Fabrication
  • Electronic Properties
  • Molecular Building Blocks
  • Nanoscale Materials
  • Systems
  • Photonics
  • Nanobiology
  • Nanocharacterization
