Institute of Electronic and Sensor Materials

Welcome to the IESM website

The focus of the Institute of Electronic and Sensor Materials is on the interface and surface chemistry of materials used in electronics, chemical and biological sensing, and membrane technology. A wide range of surfaces of different materials is researched. The competences of the institute include the areas of material synthesis, coating technologies as well as the characterization of materials and functions, especially of nanoscale materials.

The Institute of Electronic and Sensor Materials belongs to the Faculty of Materials Science and Technology (Faculty 5). It was founded on March 1, 2007 and is located at Gustav-Zeuner-Strasse 3.

Institute director & professorship Electronic and Sensor Materials

Prof. Dr. rer.nat. Yvonne Joseph

Professorship Biomineralogy and Extreme Biomimetics
