Materials and surface analytics

Comprehension before optimization

In many cases, research and development activities entail a careful analysis of materials and their surfaces.
Adequate understanding is needed of the processes involved on the surface and at interfaces during the production, processing or application of a product: this knowledge is the basis for sustainable optimization of components in automotive and mechanical engineering or even in medical technology. A robust analysis is therefore the best groundwork for continuous quality assurance and
further development of innovative products.

Analytics for research, development and production

The NMI analyzes processes on surfaces and at interfaces, as well as in micro and nano structures and down to atomic dimensions.
In addition to providing analytical support to research and development projects, the NMI offers a wide spectrum of services to clients who are only interested in contract analysis. The laboratories at the NMI are equipped with diverse instruments as well as a broad spectrum of preparative, imaging and spectroscopic methods.
