Development of Microsystems
The Institute of Micro Production Technology has a high level of experience in the development of electromagnetic effect-based microsystems. The spectrum of microsystems includes various types of sensors (e.g. Eddy current sensors and AMR/GMR sensors) and magnetic microactuators (e.g. biomedical and optical actuator systems and micro motors). The development of these systems involves the design using analytical/network-based and technical simulation methods in terms of the existing production technologies at the IMPT. A Class ISO 5 cleanroom is available for production.
The opportunities of a collaboration in research and development or in a small contract are diverse and the following only represent an overview of the possible processes at the IMPT. For your specific needs, feel free to contact Dr.-Ing. Marc Wurz. Of course, you can also get information about the research areas, projects and facilities at the IMPT.
