Welcome to the IMS

The Institute for Micro- and Nanoelectronic Systems (IMS) is an institute of the KIT Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of Division III "Mechanical and Electrical Engineering" at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The scientific focus of the IMS is on the development of novel quantum technological detector and sensor systems with highest time and energy resolution, whose performance is far beyond the limits of classical electronics. Our vision is to establish these innovative systems as a universal tool in the natural sciences, the life sciences and industry, thus contributing to the solution of current and future challenges in research and industry. In teaching, the IMS participates actively and with dedication in the basic education of the students of the faculty. In addition, the relevant fundamentals for the research focus of the institute are taught in the master's program. Here, through case studies, internships, seminars as well as academic theses, students are especially given the opportunity to participate in the development of an exciting and rapidly evolving field of research or to contribute their own ideas for the technology of the future.

Head of the Institute :
