AMOs mission is to close the gap between university research and industrial application. AMO identifies topics from basic research and demonstrates these in application-oriented technology. In joint projects and bilateral cooperation results are transferred to industry. Thus nanotechnology provides potential for application areas such as information technology, biotechnology and environmental technology. Headed by Max Lemme, AMO operates a high level 400 m² cleanroom. A range of services from consulting to prototype development is offered as well.

Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CENIDE) an der Universität Duisburg-Essen

Spatial Atomic Layer Deposition (Spatial ALD, or just SALD) is a form-following high-quality coating at the atomic level. Compared with conventional ALD, this ingenious technology stacks atomic layers many times faster. Maximum throughput at the lowest possible costs, improved functionality, efficiency and sustainability, material reduction, and longer life span are some of the added values Spatial ALD brings. Our in-depth expertise in Spatial ALD technology, combined with the unique ability to transfer it fast from lab to high-volume production, offers you excellent opportunities in today’s growth markets. We offer atmospheric Spatial ALD solutions for tandem PV systems, batteries, packaging, electrolysers and fuel cells.

Stay ahead of the competition. Let’s explore, develop and integrate together!

University of Siegen – School of Science and Technology

The key benefit of the “School of Science and Technology”, located at the University of Siegen, is its interdisciplinary oriented research profile. Two domains, namely material science and sensor technologies including sensor data processing, establish a basis for multidisciplinarity among the different research fields. Research at the School of Science and Technology addresses not only questions of technical fundamentals but also develops solutions for industrial applications. Fields of research include e.g. topics like Cyber-Physical Systems and Interfaces, artifical Intelligence or “smart materials” based on nanotechnologies.
