IHP / BTU JointLab - Research and Education for a better Future

what we are:

We are a common facility of the Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics GmbH Frankfurt/Oder (IHP) and the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus (BTU).

Jointly conducted research, promotion of scientific off-spring and organization of scientific events are the main functions of the Joint Lab.

Our main competency is related to

  • Silicon Materials Research
  • Diagnostics
  • Laser-Material Interaction

The existing areas of expertise are strengthened and interlinked and new research work in prospective fields are initiated by our Joint Center of Competency "Semiconductor Materials and Technology for the Information Technology of IHP and BTU".

This work also includes chairs of the BTU

  • Chair of Experimental Physics II / Materials Science
  • Chair of Theoretical Physics
  • Work Group for Physical Chemistry
  • Chair of Systems
  • Chair of Technical Computer Science
  • Chair of Circuit Design
  • Chair of Microelectronics

what we offer:

An accentuated development of the cooperation with research institutions in Germany and abroad, with international organisations and industrial partners is accomplished to boost the capabilities and the appeal of the centre and to gene- rate results exploitable by the industry on the long term.

This is related to the following research topics

  • Silicon Materials and Technology
    • Advanced Si for microelectronics
    • Si for photovoltaics
    • Si-based photonics, mainly Si-based light emitters
    • Si-based nanoelectronics and quantum devices
    • Controlled placement of biomolecules onto Si
    • Pulsed Laser Deposition
    • Diagnostics support for materials and technology research
  • Circuits and Systems
    • Optical switching and computing
    • RF circuits
    • Wireless internet systems

what we want:

The collaboration with Chinese partners on the above given research fields will be intensified. The Chinese students and postdocs employed in the IHP/BTU Joint Lab may help to realize this goal.
