Paul Drude Institute for Solid State Electronics (PDI)
Electronic components are becoming increasingly small, facilitating ever more powerful, energy-efficient computer chips. Research activities at the Paul Drude Institute for Solid State Electronics (PDI) in Berlin-Mitte focus on studying nanostructured III-V semiconductors and hybrid layer systems of ferromagnets and semiconductors. The physical properties of the structures produced are already controlled and adjusted on the atomic scale through the growth processes. The tailoring of materials at the nanoscale leads to new properties and functionalities such as the generation, switching, storage and transmission of electrical and optical signals.
With its solid-state physical methods, PDI seeks to develop new functions that may come into play when components in electronics reach the limits of classical physics due to ever-progressing miniaturisation.
