Micro-, Nano- 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.


Current research topics 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
