Introduction: Nanotechnology in Saxony
Saxony's success in the last decade is thanks in large part
to its development as a leading research and manufacturing
location for microelectronics and nanotechnology.
The city of Dresden, for example, has in recent years developed
into the most significant location for electronics in Europe.
In addition to the large semi-conductor companies in and around
Dresden, eg. Infineon, AMD and Wacker Siltronic (Freiberg),
such facilities as the Advanced Mask Technology Center and
the recently founded Fraunhofer Center for Nanoelectronic
Technologies are working on cutting-edge research and development
into future nanotechnological products.
Saxony is also leading in other nanotechnological application
fields such as the application of very thin nanoscaled layers
and the use of nanoparticles in different branches of industry.
A major contributing factor here is the state's outstanding
research infrastructure, which links numerous universities
and several non-university research institutes.
