The Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle (Saale) is a research institute in Germany in the field of materials research. It was founded in 1992 as a follow-up to the German Academy of Sciences Institute of Solid State Physics and Electron Microscopy and moved into new buildings between 1997 and 1999. It is one of 80 institutes in the Max Planck Society (Max-Planck-Gesellschaft).Coordinates: 51°29′43″N 11°56′29″E / 51.49528°N 11.94139°E / 51.49528; 11.94139

The institute has three main departments:

  1. The Theory Department, headed by Prof. Eberhard Gross, mainly carries out theoretical research on the electronic, magnetic, optical, and electrical properties of micro- and nanostructured solid-state systems'.[1]
  2. The Experimental Department 1, headed by Prof. Jürgen Kirschner, mainly deals with the magnetic properties of dimensionally reduced systems and their dependence on electronic structure, crystalline structure and morphology.[2]
  3. The Experimental Department 2, headed by Prof. Ulrich Gösele, is focussed on the scientific understanding, design and fabrication of new materials for information, communication, engineering as well as bio-technological applications.[3]
