Research Building

MAIN was built between 2011 and 2018 as a research building in accordance with Article 91b, Paragraph 1, No. 3 of the Basic Law. On August 13, 2018, the new building was handed over to the TU Chemnitz. The construction of the research building was funded as part of a successful application from the Chemnitz University of Technology to the Science Council and has offered state-of-the-art research and working conditions for around 120 scientists since it was handed over.

Research Services

The Central Scientific Facility MAIN sees itself as an interdisciplinary center, unique in Europe, for exploratory research into the material class of flexible nanostructured membranes. The term nanomembrane summarizes very thin functional structures (down to an atomic layer) that are characterized by high mechanical flexibility. They form the basis for new types of tiny, bendable, stretchable, and malleable components and, therefore, extremely adaptable. This means that new technical solutions in electronics and photonics can be created on increasingly compact and powerful flexible systems for mobile communication, energy, sensor and medical technology. Application examples are energy storage units for tiny and autonomously working sensor nodes, flexible sensor systems and sensor matrices e.g. B. for artificial skin, elastic magnetic sensors, spintronic components on a molecular basis, highly integrated optofluidic sensors for biological diagnostics, for example in lab-on-chip systems, optoplasmonic transducers and micro/nanoelectromechanical resonators (M / NEMS). Findings from research should flow into the development of further, future-oriented fields of materials science for the benefit of society and the economy. MAIN brings together already existing excellent activities at the TU Chemnitz and forms a new research direction within the core competence "Materials and Intelligent Systems" of the TU Chemnitz. This creates an important bridge between basic research and technological implementation.
