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 extensive collaborative research projects, both National and International, with partners in China, India, Europe including Israel, and the USA.
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 by the end of 2024.
The Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics is one of about 80 institutes of the Max Planck Society. This film gives a small insight into the current developments and diverse activities of the institute.

IMPRS-STNS is a dynamic school that tailors the teaching to each doctoral student individually. In addition to their research projects, IMPRS-STNS graduates are given the opportunity to take part in a complementary training programme.
The institute has an extensive infrastructure that includes a state of the art modelshop, electronics workshop, a supercomputer, and a clean-room, as well as a wide range of modern experimental facilities.
We created a new open space area for discussions, and meetings. This should help to foster interaction among the members of the institute and any visitors.
