The Dresden Center for Nanoanalysis (DCN) is an interdis­ciplinary technological platform of Technische Universität Dresden and the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) in the field of nanoscale materials analysis. The vision of the highly motivated DCN team is to establish it as an internationally visible center of competence in the field of 4D materials analysis as well as an European user center.

Leading-edge research is performed in the field of three-dimensional imaging and analysis of kinetic processes in materials and structures down to the atomic scale. The first research projects of the newly formed center focus on the study of solid-state physical phenomena and processes in innovative electronic devices based on one-dimensional nanostructures such as silicon nanowires and carbon nano-tubes as well as nanoscale sensors. These devices are expected to have a much higher perfor­mance than current CMOS devices and sensor systems. The analytical results will be interpreted jointly with researchers of the Silicon Nanowire and Organic Paths.

The DCN team works closely together with non-uni­versity institutes in Dresden, linked within the so-called DRESDEN-concept. The strong collaboration with the Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nanoanalysis (DFCNA) is particularly focused on applied materials-related research for a broad range of new applica­tions in the fields of automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics, energy, sensor technology as well as medical engineering and health monitoring. Strategic partnerships with innovative companies have been established to align the research on industrial needs.
