Fraunhofer ENAS - Your System and Technology Partner in the Field of Smart Systems Integration by using Micro and Nano Technologies

The particular strength of the Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS lies in the development of smart integrated systems for different applications. Fraunhofer ENAS develops single components, technologies for their manufacturing as well as system concepts and system integration technologies and transfers them into production. The institute offers research and development services from the idea, via design and technology development or realization based on established technologies up to tested prototypes.



Miniature Spectrometer for Smartphones

Based on chip-integrated optical infrared components, a spectrometer weighing just one gram was developed at Fraunhofer ENAS. Built into smartphones, it enables a wide range of analyses from drugs to water samples in everyday use.
