In this newsletter (issue 2, 2008) we would like to give you some highlights of our ongoing activities at the Institut fuer Mikroelektronik Stuttgart. The topics of the current issue are:

MoDekt – Direct Detection of Medical Data
The detection of relevant medical data in the medical practice, in the ambulance vehicle or at the home of patients with chronic diseases is an important subject in medical technology (Point-of-Care Testing POCT).
In a preliminary scientific study funded by the BMBF, Germany, scientists of the universities of Tübingen and Stuttgart (Institut für Physikalische Elektronik – IPE), physicians of the central laboratory of the university hospital of Tübingen and collaborators of the Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart are jointly working on a modular detection platform (MoDekt) for direct optical bio-analysis methods without marking.

The Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart celebrated its 25th anniversary
On July 18th, 2008, IMS celebrated its 25th anniversary in Stuttgart with many representatives and partners from trade and industry, politics and science.

MAGIC – Maskless Lithography for IC Manufacturing
The research project “MAGIC” MAskless LithoGraphy for IC Manufacturing) was started on January 1st, 2008 within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Union aiming at the development of pattern generators for the direct-writing of the 32-nm lithography node including the appropriate infrastructure in Europe.

IdeenPark 2008 – The motto of the IMS presentation: “Hands-on Microelectronics”
Visitors could explore the world of microelectronics in a playful and entertaining way. About 1,200 visitors per day came to try out the exhibits. A real highlight was the experimental laboratory provided with eight IMS boards.
