Nanotechnology is generally characterized by an largely improved performance of components, small quantities of raw material and a high added value. Various future oriented technologies such as micro(nano)mechanics, micro(nano)electronics and nanobiotechnology do profit from these recent developments.

WMtech (Center for Micro- and Nanomaterials; Werkstoffe der Mikro- und Nanotechnologie) conducts research, development and technology transfer in the field of materials for nanoscience and nanotechnology. In particular, it offers an important competitive advantage to small and medium size companies. As such, WMtech develops and produces new materials with tailored properties in close cooperation with industrial partners. Besides microintegration, reliability and extended lifetime of multifunctional nanostuctured materials the development of new applications, components and products is in the focus of the R&D efforts. Several examples will be discussed.
