“NanoCraft was born out of a fascinating piece of scientific history. The dream of the physicists Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer, now honoured with the Nobel Prize, was to penetrate directly into the world of quantum physics by means of mechanical actuators. In 1981, for example, they developed the scanning tunneling microscope in the IBM research laboratory near Zurich. In this way, they created an important foundation stone for nanotechnology, which is now developing rapidly. Dr. Sabri Akari was a co-developer of the chemical force microscopy CFM derived from scanning tunneling microscopy. Based on this foundation, the company NanoCraft was established in 2001 as a spin-off of the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces Research Golm (MPI-KGF) at the Engen Innovation Centre”.

NanoCraft was established in 2001 as a spin-off of the Max Planck Institute for Colloid and Interfacial Research Golm (MPI-KGF) at the Engen Innovation Centre. The core competence of NanoCraft is the implementation of research and development projects in the fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology and surface technology. The uniqueness of the analytical techniques offered, the high level of surface expertise and the speed, flexibility and innovation in the implementation of research projects have enabled the successful development of new types of coatings to customer specifications. Several medium-sized and large German and international companies listed on the stock exchange have been won as regular customers.
In 2003, NanoCraft received the Innovation Award of the State of Baden Württemberg for the development of chemical force microscopy. In 2004, NanoCraft was awarded the international Euregio Bodensee Technology Prize.
