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.

IMT Receives Funding for Two German-Japanese Projects

Two of the three collaborative research projects which are funded by the BMBF on the topic of “Optics and Photonics” are headed by IMT. Next to Japanese partners from academia and industries the spin-off from KIT, microworks and Vanguard Photonics, are also part of the consortia (Photo: BMBF).

Press Release BMBF

Block course X-ray optics starts

The block course X-ray optics, which starts at June 4th, will not only teach you in the fundamentals of X-ray optics and X-ray imaging but will also give information on X-ray imaging in medical diagnostic and introduce new methods in radiography and computed tomography like phase contrast and dark field imaging.
