Institute for Heterogeneous Material Systems (closed 1.4.2016)

The research activities of the Institute for Heterogeneous Materials Systems are aimed at improving the perspectives of thin-film photovoltaics. The research subjects range from basic studies of the materials properties and interfaces to device-oriented technological problems. This provides a mix of medium and long term goals in the development of photovoltaics, as well as fundamental research in materials science and solid state physics.
