Organisation profile

Organisational profile

Silicon-germanium in the hexagonal crystal polytype has recently emerged as a new direct bandgap semiconductor promises to become the essential brick that was missing in the silicon industry. Hex-SiGe promises to  integrate opto-electronic capabilities into the silicon industry. Research is directed towards a hex-SiGe laser, an optical amplifier, a detector as well as to low-dimensional hex-SiGe semiconductors like quantum wells and dots.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
