Our research

The objectives of the Division of Solid State Electronics are to develop technical solutions from individual devices to small systems. We strive for innovations related to electronic sensors, biomechatronics, neuroprosthetics and medical systems for continuous and real-time health monitoring. We also explore materials- and component-solutions for the brain-inspired computing technology, energy efficient electronics, as well as energy conversion and electricity generation to operate small self-supporting sensor systems.

Our research is basic, strategic and long-term. Read more about it in our Popular Science description.
