BioMEMS - Biomedical microtechnology

The Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has been gaining expertise over many years in structuring diverse polymeric materials and selected metals (especially gold and nickel) down to the nanometer range. Our technologies comprise lithographic structuring (electron beam lithography, deep X-ray lithography, and UV lithography) and replication methods (hot embossing, thermoforming, and nanoimprint).

A large variety of manufacturing processes, test methods, and state-of-the-art equipment are available on site. Most of the devices and facilities are accommodated in our cleanrooms on a total area of approximately 500 m².
