The department of Technological Electronics works on the research and development of devices and methods in the field of optoelectronics and MEMS technology (micro-electronical-mechanical-systems), supplemented with extensive work in nanotechnology, thin film technology and technological method-development. The applications of lasers, Nanosensors and nano actuators can be found in ‘Personal Intelligent Systems’, energy-, information-, medical technique and pharmacology.
High-resolution nanoimprint technology, the use of focused ion beam (FIB) and plasma enhanced processes are used for the structuring of nanostructures at INA.
During the development of devices and structures, designs by numerical simulations of optical, electrical, mechanical, thermal or quantum mechanical properties are created and developed further.
The analytical equipment at the institute is employed for precise characterization of Nanostructures, optoelectronic devices and technological processes. The field of activity at INA covers the span from high-end technologies (EUVL, compound semiconductors, nanoimprint, plasma processing) to low-cost designs aimed at large area implementations. At this the relationship of scientific research with direct applications and industry cooperation is of particular importance for us.
