What cooperation opportunities are available?

From a small, individual project to a large consortium - we offer tailor-made partnerships for your requirements.

 

Contacts for companies

Please contact us if you have and technical or general project questions or enquiries.

 

Microelectronics

We analyze the properties of microelectronics and microsystem technology components and thus increase the reliability and performance, for example, of computer chips and sensors.

 

Plastics

We open up new potential for the use of polymers - for example, as lightweight construction materials for the automotive and aviation industry, in efficient tyres or as plastics made of renewable raw materials.

 

Surfaces

How good are the materials used in medical engineering and biotechnology? How can cosmetic care products be improved? What can materials made from natural materials achieve? We find out.

 

Photovoltaics

We use our top expertise to improve technology, from wafer manufacture to module production. We develop new materials to make photovoltaics more cost effective, more efficient and more reliable.

 

Phosphors

We work on the latest generation of lighting technology and improve the reliability, efficiency and color stability of LEDs.

 

Optical Materials and Technologies

We drive innovations for microstructure-based optimization of optical materials and coatings, as well as for laser processing technologies used in industrial applications.
