CSEM is a private nonprofit Swiss organization for research and innovation. Supported by the Swiss Confederation, our mission is to enhance the competitiveness of industry by developing new technology platforms and transferring it to the industrial sector.
Our operation is based on five strategic programs:
Microsystems (Design & process Integration & packaging)
Systems (Scientific instrumentation, Medical device technology, Automation)
Photovoltaics & Energy Management (Crystalline Silicon & metallization , Modules & System integration, Thin film coating & devices, Printable photovoltaics, Energy Management)
Ultra-Low-Power Integrated Systems (System-on-chips, Wireless, Vision)
Surface Engineering (Nanotechnology, biotechnology, printable electronics)
In each of the above, we have gained a reputable standing on the national and international levels by offering our customers and industry partners custom-made, innovative solutions supported by our extensive market knowledge and technology expertise. CSEM plays a key role in the innovation value chain, by relying on public–private partnerships and narrowing the gap between fundamental research and industrialization. The support we get from the Swiss Confederation provides CSEM with greater flexibility in addressing a broad spectrum of technology research areas, which strengthens our commitment to innovation and sustainability and puts us in a better position to address future social and environmental challenges. By expanding CSEM’s knowledge and adapting it to industrial needs, new products are brought to market and new ventures are created. CSEM works with a wide range of stakeholders, from startups to SMEs and large organizations. Our services include contract R&D, strategy and innovation consultancy, development of specific business solutions for several Industrial Sectors (Space & Scientific Instrumentation, Watchmaking, Health & Lifestyle, Communication & Semiconductor, Energy & Environment, Automation & Control, Aeronautics, Transport & Security).
EVATEG Center develops thermal technologies for electronics, solid state lighting and display technologies. EVATEG’s capability includes both theoretical studies and experimental validation with prototypes at the chip and system level. Center has developed a number of models to identify chip level local hot spots and system level high performance thermal solutions which are patented with globally. EVATEG is open to license technologies through Ozyegin University Technology Transfer Office and spin off companies in the technology eco-system. Developing a cost effective, low weight, and sustainable thermal solution with customer focus is the primary goal of the EVATEG technology team.
Holst Centre is an independent R&D center that develops technologies for wireless autonomous sensor technologies and flexible electronics, in an open innovation setting and in dedicated research trajectories. A key feature of Holst Centre is its partnership model with industry and academia based around roadmaps and programs. It is this kind of cross-fertilization that enables Holst Centre to tune its scientific strategy to industrial needs.
Light plays a fundamental role in our lives. It provides illumination and stimulation; it can affect our emotions and bring safety to the darkness. Light even regulates basic biological processes deep within our bodies. Flexible, lightweight and shining over large areas in almost any shape, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) will let us do more with light than ever before – opening up new designs and ways to treat illness. And with lighting currently using around 20% of the world’s electricity, OLEDs’ potential for high efficiency could save huge amounts of energy and greenhouse gas emissions.

Luger Research fosters a global understanding of future lighting solutions. They do this by raising awareness, communicating and supporting the lighting industry and research, and by facilitating partnerships. This enables lighting technologies and trends to contribute to sustainability and well-being, for a better future. Luger Research, with its headquarters in Austria, is a media, events and research organization that supports the global lighting industry by sharing information about trends and technologies for future lighting solutions. Founded in 2001 with a focus on research and consulting, Luger Research has grown and developed in the last 16 years. The LED professional publications were launched in 2006, in 2011 the LED professional Symposium +Expo was introduced and now, in 2017, the Trends in Lighting Forum & Show has joined the company’s portfolio. Today Luger Research cooperates with multiple lighting organizations, scientific, event and media partners around the globe.
OPTIS is the world leading software editor for the advanced scientific simulation and visualization of lighting, materials and human vision within a Virtual Reality environment. Its solutions allow designers, ergonomists and engineers to simulate and optimize lighting performance, product appearance, perceived quality and visual brand identity and meet regulation, in a fully-immersive environment.
OPTIS CAD embedded solutions are fully integrated into your design process. OPTIS 3D High End Simulations allow you to experience your future product in a virtual reality center using a physics based approach that ensures safety and quality and enhance visual signature of your products. With these tools, simply enjoy working in a collaborative environment at any stage of your product life cycle, from design to engineering, to marketing. Optimize the development time and cost thanks to the OPTIS’ flexible and efficient software tool set.
OPTIS makes it possible to simulate the spectral radiation of the source which will illuminate the colored object. Depending on its color, the object will return only part of the light and it’s this light/object combination that results in the final color of the product. It’s precisely this phenomenon that we reproduce in our solutions, and the reason why we can say that the results you get with our software are “physically correct”. OPTIS software is the only approach to date that guarantee the ultra-realistic color of an object.
