We are ...


Founded in 2004, Nanotest was a small group of scientists and engineers that had gathered at the Micro Materials Center of Fraunhofer in Berlin-Wedding to build up a business all around material characterization. Quickly, the focus shifted onto thermal material characterization and our flagship measurement system TIMA was build in its first version. In the following years, more measurements methods and systems followed as well as competence in thermography-based failure analysis.

Years of active participation in many successful research projects followed and Nanotest grew with challenging characterization tasks and built a portfolio of various measurement techniques and - more importantly - lots of experience in thermal management, characterization and understanding of current and future industrial challenges.

Today, Nanotest is a team of over 20 employees, operating in their headquarter in Berlin and an auxiliary laboratory in Chemnitz, Saxony. Nanotest has a portfolio of 5 distinct measurement systems and offers measurement and analysis services to industrial and academic partners all over the world.

A network

Nanotest operates as part of a well-interconnected scientific work group, the joint lab berlin for thermal management. The work group collects expertise in thermal management from two SMEs, an institute and two universities and offers advantages like equipment sharing, knowledge exchange and a comprehensive set of measurement and characterization capabilities, failure analysis techniques supplemented with the power of numerical analysis.
