Technical University of Munich (TUM)
In the spring of 2016 it was possible to gain the services of Prof. Marc Tornow to head up the Silicon Technologies and Devices department together with Prof. Ignaz Eisele (in retirement since 2020). Marc Tornow holds the Professorship in Molecular Electronics at Technical University of Munich and is involved in research into nanoscale components in molecular electronics and biosensorics.
Through the Chair for Technical Electrophysics there is also close collaboration with Dr. Gabriele Schrag and Prof. Gerhard Wachutka. Research there focuses on physically based modeling, numerical simulation and the characterization and diagnosis of production processes and the operating response of microstructured components. Collaborative research aims to further strengthen Fraunhofer EMFT expertise in this area. Joint doctoral dissertations on various preliminary research topics further enrich collaboration.
Prof. Amelie Hagelauer is a new director of the Fraunhofer EMFT. Since September 1, 2021 she leads the research institution together with Prof. Christoph Kutter.
In her university chair for Micro- and Nanosystems Technology at TUM, Amelie Hagelauer's research and lecturing focusses on e.g. integrated and discrete circuits for microelectronic systems in communication, radar, automotive, medical and sensor technology.
The basics for concepts and application of microelectronic systems is provided by circuit technology, especially with novel memory technologies, high frequency, sender/receiver, radar, semiconductor, microsystem and antenna technologies.
Besides modelling and simulation of integrated circuits and complex SiP, the focus here lies also e.g. on characterization of the drafted circuits and systems.
