Material Development and Functionalization

The continuous development of materials plays a central role in modern technology, as they form the basis for the realization of innovative technical applications. From microelectronics to renewable energies and medical technology, the broad spectrum of applications benefits from the targeted development and functionalization of materials.

From biomedicine to industrial applications, we develop materials with improved properties that meet the specific requirements of our customers. Another focus is on coatings that specifically control the interaction between medical implants and biological tissue.

For the targeted modification of materials and the biofunctionalization of medical devices, the NMI develops, manufactures and tests novel biomaterials and customized coatings. Physicochemical analyses enable the characterization of structures and surfaces, while biological investigations provide information on interactions with biological systems.
