AMO’s mission as a research oriented company is to efficiently close the gap between university research and industrial application. For this purpose AMO identifies those topics from basic research that seem particularly suitable for industrial implementation and demonstrates these in application-oriented technology. In joint projects and bilateral cooperation, research and development results
are transferred to industry for maintenance and creation of jobs. Thus nanotechnology is expected to provide considerable potential for application areas such as information technology, biotechnology and environmental technology. Headed by Prof. Max Lemme, AMO operates a state-of-the-art 400 m² cleanroom and offers a range of services from consulting to prototype development.
