The Center for Micro and Nanoelectronic Systems Aachen is a consortium of key technology institutes at the RWTH Aachen University and  covers a largely vertically integrated expertise from material development, process and device technology up to system integration. The research topics are both of fundamental- and application-oriented nature. Novel materials like phase-change, 2-dimensional materials, organic and inorganic wide bandgap semiconductors are investigated as basis for novel electronic, photonic and sensing devices and circuits. The development of energy-efficient devices for power and RF electronics, displays, solid-state lighting and organic and hybrid photovoltaics are examples of ou research domains. Low power, energy-efficient active and memory device research addresses future challenges of the information and communication technology.

With these technologies we jointly address a variety of societal challenges such as safe table water using UV-LEDs (e.g. https://www.photonics21.org/), next generation computing (post von-Neumann) and displays integrating new devices based on non-volatile and 2D materials, novel circuits and architectures
