Integrated materials, microsystems technology and detector technology



The FMF closely collaborates with the Freiburg Department of Micro Systems Engineering to develop novel materials and surfaces tailored to specifc applications in micro systems technology – ranging from sensor technology to micro optics. By integrating materials into microsystems, functions with a very high functional density are obtained. Our research spectrum ranges from (bio)sensors, detector technology and actors to micro optics and micro fuidics.


Key areas are:

  • Sensor technology and micro chips for biosensor systems
  • Personalized medical therapy and diagnostics
  • Detector technology, e.g. X-ray detectors
  • Polymer brushes and microfuidics
  • Biofunctionalized surfaces for chips
  • Chip-based high-throughput screening and new analytical tools for Life Sciences
