Based on key expertise in dielectric materials for semiconductor devices NaMLab focuses on the integration and application of its materials expertise applied to reconfigurable and energy efficiency devices. NaMLab‘s approach of placing the device rather than the material system itself into the center of its research activities differentiates it from other world class material research activities in the Dresden area. It also allows taking full advantage of the already existing expertise by forming orthogonal consortia. It therefore fills the gap between basic materials research and its application towards electronic circuits and systems. The importance of this approach was very well received in the reporting period.

Accordingly the research is structured in three main areas:
