Herzlich Willkommen!

Die Arbeitsgruppe für optoelektronische Materialien und Bauelemente beschäftigt sich mit der Herstellung und Charakterisierung von Halbleiterstrukturen für optische und elektronische Anwendungen, z. B. in der Quanteninformationstechnologie. In diesen Halbleiterstrukturen werden Quanteneffekte ausgenutzt, um neuartige Eigenschaften zu erhalten. Ein Beispiel hierfür sind die atomar scharfen Energieniveaus in Halbleiterquantenpunkten.

Research

One focus of our work is the production of semiconductor heterostructures using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), an ultra-high vacuum deposition process that enables the highest material qualities and purities. After growth, these heterostructures are characterised structurally, optically and electrically. For structural analyses, we use high-resolution X-ray diffraction, scanning and transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. Optically, the samples are analysed using photoluminescence spectroscopy, reflection measurements and spatial resolution methods. Electrical characterisation is mainly carried out using Hall measurements, capacitance-voltage spectroscopy and current-voltage measurements.
