About ZfM

Welcome at the Center for Microtechnologies

ZfM Logo

a special research center at the Technische Universität Chemnitz. Our institute is active in the fields of advanced technologies for microelectronics, microsystems and silicon micromachining as well as nanotechnologies. The mission of the Center for Microtechnologies is to continue an excellent and interdisciplinary basic, application specific and close to industry research up to the fabrication of prototypes and early demonstration samples for our national and international partners.

Cooperation Center for Microtechnologies (ZfM) - Fraunhofer ENAS

Various joint research projects demonstrate the close and fruitful co-operation between the Center for Microtechnologies and Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS. The Fraunhofer ENAS has emerged from the Chemnitz Branch of the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration (IZM) on July 1, 2008.

Smart Systems Campus

The Smart Systems Campus will create a pooled, dynamic network of microsystems expertise in the Chemnitz. It is located very close to the Technische Universität Chemnitz and the Fraunhofer Institutes.
