Integrated Miniaturised Systems

The complex scientific and technological challenges of modern life require the synergetic interaction of the natural sciences and engineering.

This has been the driving force behind the Applied Research Center “Integrated Miniaturised Systems“ (IMS), which develops innovative solutions in science and technology.

The developments and results from our research are used in the fields of biomedicine, industry, the home, transport, and information technology. 

Our research benefits from the interaction of the complementary expertises of our Applied Life Sciences and the Micro Systems and Nano Technologies Departments. As a result we go beyond the boundaries of traditional disciplines to generate new scientific and technical solutions.

A key aspect of our work is the application of methods from micro and nano technology to research into and to interact with biological systems at the macro, micro, and nano levels.

These methods can be used for a wide range of applications from measuring single cells with nano wire sensors, or making artificial tissue, to analysising perfused organs, or testing body sensors for human beings.

Numerous public and industry funded projects prove the relevance and attractiveness of our research topics. We work together with companies, as well as other universities and research institutes in Germany and abroad.

Our research projects are carried out by engineers, Ph.D. students, and post-docs. The research groups also benefit from the active participation of under-graduates, and they in turn develop research skills.
