The following competences form the basis of the research work at Fraunhofer EMFT: Functional Molecules, Silicon Technologies, Devices and 3D Integration, Foil Technologies, Micropumps and Design, Test & System Integration. Each of these competences in its own right allows new kinds of sensors and actuators to be created. But the real strength of Fraunhofer EMFT lies in the interaction between these areas: after all, innovations often emerge where technologies reach their limits and begin to cross-fertilize.
