High-performance materials such as semiconductors and energy materials are fundamental to solving the major challenges of the future: intelligent mobility, Industry 4.0, the energy transition or the Internet of Things. Both the development of new, high-performance materials and the associated efficient manufacturing processes play a major role here, as well as a sustainable recycling economy that enables the economic recovery of valuable materials. The Fraunhofer THM is a partner of companies within the framework of industrial contracts and publicly funded projects in the production, application and recycling of semiconductor and energy materials.

Supported by the Free State of Saxony, the Fraunhofer THM is a research and transfer platform of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology IISB and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS. Together, semiconductor and energy materials are transferred into new applications and at the same time, future material recycling is considered and developed.
