Ultra-thin chips enable new applications in microelectronics, micro system technology and medical technology.

The 100,000 € Landesforschungspreis für Angewandte Forschung is awarded to Joachim Burghartz who heads the Nano- und Mikroelektronische Systeme at Universität Stuttgart and is the Director and CEO of the Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart (IMS). As officially announced by the Federal Government of Baden-Württemberg during the press conference at Landtag today the prize is awarded to honor the development of the Chipfilm technology and its application in cooperation with the Robert Bosch GmbH. The Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst awards this research prize annually. The decision on who is awarded the research prize is made by an interdisciplinary jury consisting of renowned and experienced scientists. Prof. Burghartz views this prize as a recognition of the work carried out by the entire team involved at the IMS as well as its externally participating partners and Universität Stuttgart. The prize money will go to a new research project on flexible organic electronics where the institute will also involve its expertise on the manufacture of new stencil masks and the design of integrated circuits (ASIC). “With this prize money we will be able to explore new research areas. I am already looking forward to these new opportunities now”, says Joachim Burghartz.
