Microsystems Engineering

Ever smaller, ever smarter. Microsystems engineering and microelectronics enable the integration of numerous intelligent functions in ever smaller systems. And this for ever more sophisticated applications in production, energy, environmental, communication and security technology, as well as in healthcare.

The NMI develops, manufactures and tests specific microsystems for applications in the life sciences and industrial sensor technology. The entire value chain is covered, from design and simulation to the standardized production of small series in modern clean rooms. Our team of scientists develops planar and 3D microelectrodes, chemosensors and components for in vitro electrophysiology, smart implants and neuroprostheses. Smart system integration benefits from new materials and manufacturing processes as well as the possibilities of thin-film technology to produce lightweight and highly flexible circuit carriers and biocompatible encapsulations.
