Newsletter issue 1 2018

We present our IMS newsletter.

In this newsletter (issue 1, 2018) 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:

3D nano structuring - structured surfaces
In the area of moulded and replicable engineering there´s a growing demand for originals with a defined 3D structure. These types of photo-sensitive polymer layers can be manufactured using speckle lithography. As next step, the topography can be transferred into the substrate below or be copied onto an reproducible copy. In order to fully utilize this technology it is being researched extensively at IMS CHIPS.

New gallium nitride (GaN) power electronic projects at IMS CHIPS
The institutionally-funded research projects “C-GaN” (funded by Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG) and the KMU-innovativ project “GaNScan” (funded by Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung BMBF) press ahead with the GaN power electronics research area at full speed.

Digitalization – intelligent sensor solutions, safety and sturdy networks
The current all but inflationarily used term “digitalization” originally refers to the conversion of analog data into digital formats, such as the determination of parameters like temperature, pressure or voltage and their depiction in discrete non-continuous numerical values. Today, digitalization is increasingly known as an effect caused by the usage of digitalized information particularly affected by networked products and systems.

ZIM project for the manufacture of large-area Si energy filter membranes launched at IMS CHIPS
In a ZIM-promoted project IMS CHIPS and the new start-up mi2-factory based in Jena are joining together for technological processes on the high-energy ion implantation of SiC power semiconductors. The focus, however, is on the Stuttgart-based development of large-scale and high-precision Si membrane masks, so-called energy filter membranes.
