IVAM Research presents new survey on micro- and nanotechnology in Germany to the international community

18.05.2010
Micro- and nanotechnology are key technologies that generate unique advanced and novel products, which are applied all over the world in many industries, like medical technology, mechanical engineering, production, the automotive industry or consumer electronics. In spite of the current economic crisis, micro and nano products are still reaching double-digit growth rates, for instance micro sensors for boom markets like green technologies and consumer electronics.

Micro- and nanotechnology companies in Germany are successful players on global markets. IVAM Research has now compiled the activities in these areas in Germany in a comprehensive survey. The “Micro/Nano Atlas of Germany“ has first been presented to the public during the annual summit of the international microtechnology community, the Micromachine Summit 2010, which took place in Dortmund at the end of April.

The “Micro/Nano Atlas of Germany” gives a complete and unique overview over the micro- and nanotechnology industry in Germany, including research activities and priorities in six federal states and 38 regional clusters. In addition, the survey describes the federal funding policy, market and application trends, and the current economic situation of the German micro- and nanotechnology industry. IVAM managing director Uwe Kleinkes is going to present the survey in the USA and Japan, at the conference Metric in San José, California this week, and during the exhibition and conference Micromachine/MEMS in Tokyo at the end of July.

The “Micro/Nano Atlas of Germany” is available from IVAM Research. As a supplement to the survey, IVAM Research offers a comprehensive database of micro- and nanotechnology companies and research institutions.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
