Welcome to the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT)

IMT is a one-stop-shop for advanced micro and nano system development and upscaling. For every posed challenge, our skilled multidisciplinary teams develop novel technological and application-oriented solutions at forefront of the state-of-the-art. Our up-to-date technology platform is also accessible through the KNMF services. The in-house lithography capabilities range down to 6 nm lateral resolution, and is coupled with our extensive know-how in fabrication process development. Our talented young scientists cover a wide range of applications and technology platforms. We extensively educate M.Sc. and Ph.D. thesis students, and our alumni hold key positions at the top technology addresses.
