Fraunhofer Nanotechnology Alliance The activities of the Nanotechnology Alliance cover the whole R&D value chain and are focused on e.g. multifunctional coatings for use in the optical, automotive and electronics industry, the design of special nanoparticles as fillers (carbon nanotubes, metals, oxides etc), nanocomposites, functional materials e.g for biomedical applications and CNT-based structural materials and actuators. The alliance also treats questions regarding toxicology and operational safety when dealing with nanoparticles. Almost a third of the Fraunhofer institutes are active in nanotechnology. The institutes of this alliance focuses its activities on the following main topics: Nanomaterials, Measuring
 and processing techniques, Nano-
 biotechnology, Nano-optics /
