About Łukasiewicz - ITME

Founded in the early seventies of the twentieth century, the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology (Łukasiewicz - ITME) with about 200 employees is a research, development and consultative institution offering a unique combination of scientific and technological capabilities.
Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Electronic Materials Technology is recognized in the world for its comprehensive and interdisciplinary research in the field of broadly defined materials engineering, electronics, photonics, nanotechnology and next-generation materials. Over the years, Łukasiewicz - ITME has retained a high rank in the Research Units Evaluation of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education (category A). Its achievements place it among the best research and development institutions that successfully carry out innovative research in many fields related to new technologies.


The R&D activities of Łukasiewicz - ITME include processing of advanced materials (e.g. graphene, semiconductor materials, mono-crystals, thick-film materials, glass and ceramic products, substrates for electronic systems, metal-ceramic composites: MMCs and FGMs, materials for opto-, piezo- and superconductor-electronics, etc.) and devices based on these materials. Łukasiewicz - ITME produces high-quality large graphene sheets measuring up to 500 x 500 mm and graphene flakes (RGO).  ITME is a world leader in graphene research.
The achievements of the scientists working at the Institute have gained praise from the scientific community and, as a result, in the last three years the ITME team has been involved in more than 70 scientific and R&D projects − including NCBiR (the National Centre for Research and Development), GrafTech, NCN (National Science Centre), EU and US projects − in the fields of materials engineering, electronics, physics and chemistry. Łukasiewicz - ITME has been granted several dozen patents in Poland, Europe and worldwide.
