Young Investigator Group Nano-SIPPE

The name of the Young investigator Group ‘Nano-SIPPE’ derives from the research topic Nanostructured SIlicon for Photonic and Photovoltaic ImplEmentations (Sippe: engl. Clique).

The main goal of the ‘Nano-SIPPE’ is the development of large-area silicon nano- and microstructures for photovoltaic and photonic applications. Aiming at basic research gearing towards future industrial applications we focus on cost-effective and up-scalable fabrication methods such as nanoimprint-lithography and high-rate silicon evaporation. The group is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in the program  NanoMatFutur (no. 03X5520). The group is embedded within the projects Berlin Joint Lab for Optical Simulations for Energy Research (BerOSE) and the HySPRINT Helmholtz Innovation Lab (HySPRINT).
