Sensor technology (Si-MEMS)

"CiS Forschungsinstitut" is a non-profit organization and located in Thuringia (Germany). We are an industry-oriented research institution focused on the development of microsystem technology, microsensors, sensor systems and silicon detectors. Providing mainly application-oriented research and development, we serve industrial enterprises and the public sector alike. Built on more than 20 years of "competence in silicon", its expertise extends from research to development to small volume series production. The "CiS Forschungsinstitut" is an institute affiliated to Ilmenau University of Technology and supports the dissemination of knowledge.
On behalf of and supported by Federal and State ministries and offices, advanced research projects are undertaken, which contribute to innovations in the private and public sector.
This funding supports research in top level and key technologies and the opening up of new research fields. The institute is involved in numerous national and European networks and cooperative ventures.
