Functional materials for Electronics, Photonics and Energy
The Institute of Physics has a long research tradition in the fields of semiconductor nanostructures and electrical transport phenomena. Newer topics include photonic crystals, organic thin films, biological and biomimetic systems as well as nanoparticles and nanoporous materials. The Institute´s methodological key competences are in experimental nanostructure characterization, notably scanning probe microscopy and X-ray and neutron scattering. Members of the Institute regularly conduct experiments at international large scale research facilities for synchrotron radiation or neutrons (for detailed information see section large-scale research facilities). Further expertise exists in microwave and infrared spectroscopy, gas sorption, contact angle measurements, fabrication of crystalline thin films via organic molecular beam epitaxy and hot-wall-epitaxy as well as atomistic modeling and simulation.
