Ultratrace analysis
Infrared sensors & spectroscopy
Molecular recognition
Multifunctional scanning probes

Our cross-disciplinary research program is focused to the development and application of innovative (micro- and nano)analytical platforms providing advanced methods and technologies in sensing, diagnostics, and imaging of complex molecular processes relevant to environmental, industrial, and medical/biological applications.

Furthermore, the IABC operates the Focused Ion Beam Center UUlm, an interdisciplinary facility for micro- and nanofabrication and –characterization.
