Si technology supports Avogadro project – Oxidation of high-purity silicon spheres at IMS
The IMS has supported the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in cleaning and oxidizing such silicon spheres for quite some time. These spheres are supposed to replace the norm kilogram as measuring standard in the future

Membranes and membrane masks made by IMS CHIPS – Further development of direct patterning technologies
The Institut fuer Mikroelektronik Stuttgart has been manufacturing membranes and membrane masks for a broadly diversified clientele for over 10 years. Depending on the material and membrane thickness round and square membrane geometries with membrane areas of less than 1 mm2 up to more than 100 cm2 can be realized.
