Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics

Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics

The Institute has substantial experimental and theoretical research programs that are focussed on novel materials with useful functionalities. Of particular interest are spintronic materials and devices, neuromorphic devices and systems, nano-photonics, topological metals and insulators. The Institute is involved in numerous collaborative research projects with academic and industry partners from Germany and around the world (including Europe, North America, and Asia).

New building for the Institute

The Max Planck Society is investing around 50 million euros to build a new building to enlarge the institute. Laboratories for research on computer technology of the next generations will be built here. The city of Halle and the Martin Luther University support the project, which will be completed in 2025.
