29 departments and junior research groups from different faculties outline the scientific Institute for Micro- and Nanotechnologies (IMN) which is formed with the aim to collaboratively perform research and training in an interdisciplinary manner in the sectors of materials research, the patterning of micro- and nanostructures, upto the realization of complete devices and systems for industrial applications.
MacroNano®is a Centre for Innovation Competence within the scope of the BMBF-Innovation Initiative "Unternehmen Region", funded for 5 years by the BMBF and supported by the Thuringian Ministry of Culture. MacroNano is resident at the Technical University of Ilmenau, and cuts into two Junior Research Groups: "Microfluidics and Biosensors" and "Functionalised Peripherics".
Ziel des Studiengangs ist es, die naturwissenschaftlichen und technologischen Grundlagen fü?r die Erzeugung von Mikro- und Nanostrukturen zu vermitteln und die Studenten innerhalb der Studienrichtung zu befähigen, zukünftige Entwicklungen zu Mikro- und Nanotechnologien sowie nanotechnischen Systemen voranzutreiben.
Methodologies leading toward control of matter at the nanoscale. For top-down fabrication methods like lithography, writing, or stamping are used to define the desired features. The bottom-up techniques exploit self-processes for ordering of supramolecular or solid state architectures from the atomic to the mesosopic scale.
The Centre for Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials at the Technical University Munich is devoted to research, development and teaching in the area of nanoscience, nanotechnology, associated materials science and life science.
The Biotechnological Centre (BIOTEC) of the Technische Universität Dresden is a unique interdisciplinary centre focussing on research and teaching in molecular bio-engineering. The BIOTEC hosts top international research groups dedicated to genomics, proteomics, biophysics, cellular machine, tissue engineering, and bioinformatics.
The program Molecular Bioengineering aims to teach students the fundamentals in biomedicine and bio-nanotechnology combining biology and technology, which are linked in two ways: On the one hand, biological knowledge on cells is applied to develop the notion of molecular factories; on the other hand, nanotechnology and bioinformatics are enabling technologies applicable to engineer biomaterials for medical applications.
The 2-year master program aims to teach students the fundamentals in biophysics and bio-nanotechnology with a twofold aim: to use nanotechnological approaches to better characterize and understand complex molecular machines such as biomolecules, but also to harness these molecules in technological systems or use them as templates or model systems for a bottom-up nanotechnology.
The Master's Program in Organic and Molecular Electronics is designed to provide students with professional skills needed to advance a successful international career in the cutting edge field of organic electronics. It offers an interdisciplinary study program comprising physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and materials science. The close collaboration with industry partners enables a highly practice-oriented education. Moreover, we strongly focus on developing soft skills required in an everyday professional lives of our future graduates, such us project management, patent law, and much more.
The group is dealing with the development and the application of structure determination methods in solids down to atomic resolution. The intention is to correlate the structure with physical properties.
The University of Dortmund covers a wide range of research activities by different chairs in the field of micro- and nanostructures. The participating workgroups have affiliated in the research cooperation micro- and nanostructures to coordinate the activities within the university and with external partners.
