Accredited Analysis Laboratory

Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology

Accredited Analytical Laboratory for Micro- and Nanotechnology

The Analytical Laboratory for Micro- and Nanotechnology at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology (IISB) in Erlangen was accredited by the “Deutsche Gesellschaft für Akkreditierung” according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. The test laboratory in Erlangen carries out tests in the fields of physical, physico-chemical, and chemical analysis of substrates, media, and materials for micro- and nanotechnology.

The IISB characterizes semiconductor processes and investigates samples of semiconductor wafers, ultra-clean chemicals, consumables, and construction materials. They are used in key industries, such as the chip industry, microsystems technology or photovoltaics. Furthermore, it supports manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech manufacturing equipment and metrology-based monitoring systems. A further area of expertise is the control of ambient conditions and contamination in ultra-clean rooms and so-called minienvironments. This is also especially beneficial for small and medium-sized companies, which either cannot afford or do not want to afford an own laboratory infrastructure.
