Fraunhofer IZM is one the world's leading institutes for applied research and the development and system integration of robust and reliable electronics.

For over 25 years, more than 230 institute researchers have been finding technological solutions in cooperation with partners from industry and academia. Emerging challenges are addressed in branches such as automotive and industrial electronics, medical engineering, ICT and semiconductor technology.

As part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Fraunhofer IZM specializes in applied and industrial contract research. Fraunhofer IZM's focus is on packaging technology and the integration of multifunctional electronics into systems.

The institute has a staff of more than 233 and saw a turnover of 30,2 million euros in 2017, of which 46,7 percent was earned through contract research. Fraunhofer IZM has two sites in Germany. Apart from its headquarters near Berlin Mitte, the institute is also represented in Dresden, a strategically important centers for electronic development and manufacturing.

The four Fraunhofer IZM departments promote internationally cutting-edge technology development. The departments jointly work on application areas and key development topics, ensuring the research is advanced across technologies. In key development topics, the Fraunhofer IZM researchers monitor and develop highly promising research questions, paving the way for future projects with industry. Here, Fraunhofer IZM benefits from its close cooperation with the Technischen Universität Berlin and other scientific institutes. Fraunhofer IZM has cooperated on highly productive preliminary research with the TU Berlin since its establishment, and the close relationship between the institute and university is best illustrated by the current practice of appointing a joint IZM institute head and TU university professorship.

Welcome to the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. At the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB), we conduct research on complex systems of materials that contributes to dealing with challenges such as the energy transition. The HZB research portfolio includes solar cells, solar fuels, thermoelectrics, and materials for new, energy-efficient information technologies (spintronics) or electrochemical energy storage. Research on these energy materials is closely connected with the operation and advanced development of the BESSY II photon source. And our research approach always concentrates on thin-film technologies. The storage ring BESSY II in Adlershof is at present the first third generation synchrotron radiation source in Germany. BESSY II emits extremely brilliant photon pulses ranging from the long wave terahertz region to hard X rays. Users can choose the energy range and the polarization of the radiation. The forty-six beam holes at the undulator, wiggler, and dipole sources offer users a many-faceted mix of beam holes and measuring sites with outstanding energy resolution. The combination of brilliance and photon pulses makes BESSY II the ideal microscope for space and time, allowing resolutions down to femtoseconds and picometres.

The profile of BESSY II is defined to a great degree by the users, now over 1800 in number. An important role is played by the scientists at the HZB, but also the institutional users like the Max Planck Society, the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, and collaborating research groups. Consequently, as a result of the activities by the Physical Technical Institute PTB, BESSY II is the European radiation standard for the calibration of light sources and detectors.
