The Institute is involved in teaching at universities, in the training of young researchers and operates a range of instruments which are used in national and international collaborations.
Education and Training
We participate in the teaching of courses for physics, biology and biomedical students at RWTH Aachen University, the University of Dortmund, and FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences. Our students receive specific training through weekly seminars and our bi-annual schools. We also contribute to the curriculum of the International Helmholtz Research School, ‘BioSoft’.
Instrumentation and Methods
We operate onsite facilities for method development, the prototyping and testing of bioelectronic systems, for fabricating and measuring the performance of devices, and testing interactions with biological materials.
Helmholtz Nano Facility (HNF)
We operate micro- and nanoelectronic devices, most of which are installed in our cleanroom. We support both internal and external users of the cleanroom and provide services for external customers.
