The Leibniz Institute for High Performance Microelectronics (IHP) is one of the internationally recognized competence centers for silicon-germanium technology.
We conduct cutting-edge research and development into silicon-based systems, high-frequency circuits and technologies for wireless and broadband communication. As a transition between basic research and application-oriented applications, the institute makes significant contributions to the innovative strength and ability of Germany and Europe as a location.
The IHP's research focuses on economically relevant topics that are used in:
Fields of Activity
Project "Brandenburg/Bayern Aktion für KI-Hardware-Themen im Lehrplan der Universitäten" pushes practice-oriented teaching. The successful cooperation in the Joint Lab between the University of Potsdam and the IHP serves as a model.
In the zUCKERrübe research project, the Eberswalde University of Applied Sciences (HNEE) and IHP are developing a fully automated robot for weed control in sugar beet cultivation. The scientists are relying on AI and robotics to solve the problem in a timely manner, especially for organic farming.
The Future Day for Girls and Boys in Brandenburg 2022 once again took place digitally at the IHP. On April 28, 20 pupils logged on to follow the rounds of talks, experiments and video contributions broadcast live from the IHP lecture room.
The Federal Ministry of Research supports regional structural change through innovative technologies with 20 million euros: Through research and development, five non-university research institutions and the BTU are creating a broad technical spectrum.
A new world speed record has been set by the waveguide-coupled germanium photodiode developed at IHP. The breakthrough was achieved through a special thin-fin design in which a germanium lamella was integrated as part of a photodiode on a silicon waveguide.
Wasser, eine der wichtigsten natürlichen Ressourcen auf der Erde, wird das Thema des 11. Brandenburger Sensornetztages am 25. November 2021 sein. Die Veranstaltung richtet sich an regionale Firmen, Kommunen, Wirtschaftseinrichtungen und Forschende.
