Microtechnology and nanotechnology
RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Micro- and nanotechnology enable us to develop new materials and miniaturized systems. By being able to measure, describe, model, control, manipulate and structure materials on the micro- and nanometer scale it is possible to develop new and improved materials and products that play a central role in solving the challenges of society. SINTEF is a major player in converting micro- and nanoscience into new products in a sustainable way.
SINTEF MiNaLab performs R&D within microsystems and nanotechnology. The focus is on silicon sensor research, prototyping and small-scale production.
Mass spectrometry - Advanced research-based analyses
We perform research-based mass spectrometric (MS) and high-throughput (HTS) analyses for SINTEF, academia and industry.
OXIPATH – Oxides for Piezoelectrics, Batteries and Thermoelectrics
OXIPATH is a strategic effort initiated by SINTEF Materials and Chemistry with the aim to address key technological issues related to oxide materials applied in three fast growing technology areas: piezoelectric devices, batteries and thermoelectric devices.
LORCENIS – Long Lasting Reinforced Concrete for Energy Infrastructure under Severe Operating Conditions
The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures under extreme operating conditions.
Green light for plant-based food packaging
Bioplastic packaging that extends the shelf life of food and tells us when it is no longer fit to eat will result in less waste.
Launch of First European Nanomedicine Characterisation Laboratory
The project combines expertise of 9 partners in 8 countries to foster nanomedicine innovation and facilitate regulatory approval.
Creating the perfect collision
To you and me, this might look like a disaster. But Norwegian ski star Petter Northug’s car crash was actually pretty ideal. The materials in the car and guard rail acted just the way they were designed to in order to save the lives of passengers in the car.
