Materials for Micro- and Nanoelectronics

Unsere Projekte

Die Realisierung der Forschungsprogramme erfolgt mit Hilfe eines regelmäßig aktualisierten Portfolios von Projekten auf Basis einer mittelfristigen Roadmap. Die Aktualisierung geschieht aufgrund inhaltlicher Erfordernisse sowie der Möglichkeiten für Kooperationen und Finanzierung. Projects Overview

Microelectronics for Society: 


„More than Moore“ materials research for functionalized Silicon technologies  


The integration of “More than Moore” modules in Silicon technologies, based on new materials and / or device concepts, is a complex task which requires expertise from many research fields. Activities in IHP materials research department cover therefore a broad range, including basic research on materials science as well as technology-related research on device and module integration: 


2D Materials:  Materials science holds a great potential for groundbreaking progress in Silicon microelectronics. However, new materials need to fulfill multiple parameters for successful integration and this is the task of our “2D Materials group”. The work of this team is currently strongly devoted to Graphene-related research.


Semiconductor Optoelectronics: 

Semiconductor Optoelectronics projects are usually based on the need for single crystalline, nowadays often strain engineered heterostructures on Silicon to make use of superior (opto)electronic properties with respect to standard Silicon. Currently, the integration of alternative semiconductor device concepts into Si mainstream technologies is intensively pursued in our department.


Adaptive Materials:

The main focus of the “Adaptive Materials for Sensing and Computing” group is the diversification of the silicon chips utilising IHP SiGe BiCMOS technologies by establishing integrated broadband sensing platforms, integrated memory devices and CMOS compatible bio-inspired devices. Current research activities of the group can be clustered in two sections: basic research and applied research. The basic research focuses on plasmonics and neuromorphic devices, whereas, applied research focuses on resistive RAMs and RF sensing.
