Chair Materials for Electrical Engineering and Electronics:MEEE

Welcome to the Chair "Materials for Electrical Engineering and Electronics"

The Department „Materials for Electrical Engineering and Electronics“ is strongly involved in the education provided by the Ilmenau University of Technology. We also conduct research in many projects, including: the preparation, characterization, and modification of solid thin-films. Our focus is on the determination of specific material properties, e.g. mechanical, electrical, tribological etc…, as well as the systematic optimization and synthesis of materials. The investigation in the correlation between structure and properties is especially important. Another goal is the development of new materials for micro and nanotechnology. We also serve as an important facililty for supporting research in industrial applications.

The department takes part in many projects funded by the DFG, industrial partners and many more.  Furthermore, we are working together with national and international partners. Our department is a member of the Institute of Materials Science and Engineering and the Institute of Micro- and Nano-technologies (IMN MacroNano) and the founding member of Center for Micro- and Nanotechnologies (ZMN).

At our department the "Testing Center for Thin Films and Materials Properties", a branch of the “Materialforschungs- und Prüfanstallt Weimar”, is located.

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
