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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
