Researchers at the INM have demonstrated the performance of their technology in endurance tests: Even after 500,000 testing cycles the dry adhesive structures work reliable. Thus, the next step towards industrial application is done.Details…
12. April 2017 09:45:
To prevent the corrosive substances from penetrating into materials, a common method is to create an anti-corrosion coating by applying paint layers of zinc-phosphate particles. Now, research scientists at INM developed a special type of zinc-phosphate particles: They are flake-like in shape because they are ten times as long as they are thick. Details…
11. April 2017 09:30:
INM is introducing new nano-coatings that reduce the effort required for cleaning heat exchangers as well as their corrosion. In these new coatings, the research scientists combine antiadhesive, anticorrosive and, on demand, also antimicrobial properties. Details…
11. April 2017 09:01:
INM has developed a technique, which allows conductor paths even on flexible foils as well as on stretchable silicone. INM will be presenting the so called photochemical metallization on this year’s Hannover Messe at the Stand B46 in hall 2 from 24 April to 28 April.Details…
10. April 2017 10:20:
Scientists at INM have developed a new type of hybrid inks which allows electronic circuits to be applied to paper directly from a pen. Details…
10. April 2017 09:56:
At this year's Hannover Messe INM will be demonstrating flexible touch screens, which are produced by printing recently developed nanoparticle inks on thin plastic foils.Details…

The aim of the joint project, NaMiComp, is to analyze Namibia’s locally available natural resources and then use them as a basis for new materials for industrial applications. In the long term, the aim is to build an on-site materials science institute at the University of Namibia.Details…
03. November 2016 10:45:
Today, Eduard Arzt is giving this year’s distinguished Soo lecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC), Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering. Every year UIUC, one of the leading materials science departments in the US, is honoring a well known scientist by this outstanding lecture invitation.Details…
04. October 2016 09:40:
About a hundred international experts will meet in Saarbrücken October 11 and 12, to discuss the latest research in electron microscopy. This is the third time the INM organizes CISCEM, the International Conference on In-situ and Correlative Electron Microscopy.Details…
13. September 2016 10:00:
de_JongeProfessor Niels de Jonge was honored by the European Microscopy Society (EMS) for his research in the field of electron microscopy of samples in liquid. He received the Life Science Award endowed with 3000 euros at the European Microscopy Conference 2016 in Lyon, France. Details…
20. July 2016 12:00:
Researchers at INM have combined a new self-assembling nano ink with an imprint process to create flexible conductive grids with a resolution below one micrometer. Details…
