The main task of the Microtechnology Department is the research, development and system integration of physical, chemical/biochemical sensors and systems:

  • MEMS and MEMS related technologies, with special emphasis on development of Si MOS embedding circuits;
  • Development and functional testing of different MEMS gas, chemical, 3D force, thermal, biology related sensors and sensor systems;
  • Development of microfluidic systems;
  • Development and applications of near IR light emitting diodes and detectors;
  • Development of solar cells and their competitive technology.

Fundamental research on:

  • Sensing principles;
  • Novel materials and nanostructures;
  • Novel 3D fabrication techniques;
  • Ion-solid interaction for supporting MEMS development.

Device and material characterizations widely used in our projects:

  • Ion beam analysis methods;
  • IR and Raman scattering;
  • Scanning Microprobes;
  • Optical and Electron Microscopy, SEM, TEM, EDX;
  • Spectroscopic Ellipsometry;
  • Electrical characterisations.

The Microtechnology Department of MFA runs the 300 sqm clean lab (Class 100 - 1000) with the complete Si-CMOS technology together with a mask shop, unique in Hungary. A rather new and developing large facility of the Department is the CIGS solar cell technology laboratory equipped with a pilot line of sputtering, evaporation and laser scribing modules for 30×30 cm2 glass substrates.
