We want to share our research results and material developments with partners from science and business. Our transfer services range from close cooperation in joint research & development projects with industrial partners up to contract research for individual needs in specific manufacturing or measurements based on our unique technical infrastructure and research equipment. Furthermore, we provide licenses and know-how transfer for patented innovations. We arrange guided labtours and expert meetings for interested cooperation partners.

The IFW hosts the SAWLab Saxony which binds together regional research activities in the field of acoustoelectronics. The close collaboration with universities and high-tech companies enables a comprehensive investigation of microacoustic devices and adjacent technologies. Following experiences are offered:
The fundamental research and utilization chain of the SAWLab Saxony includes the joint development of application-specific demonstrators, the corporative use of equipment and facilities as well as the transfer of technology to and from industrial partners involved in all stages of development. This approach allows us to address economic sectors with high growth dynamics, such as telecommunication, MEMS, sensors and actuators as well as Smart Systems and Life Sciences.
A new kind of magnetic force microscopy (MFM) sensor is based on iron filled carbon nanotubes and offers high spatial resolution, high magnetic stability and a monopole-like stray field characteristic that makes it suitable for straightforward quantitative MFM. Furthermore, due to the high mechanical stability of the carbon shell, it offers an increased damage resistance and shelf life compared to conventional MFM sensors.
We offer access to the following melting and casting facilities:
