About this member
The Institute for Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research conducts materials research for future applications in information technology and the energy sector, among others. In doing so, the HZDR uses the diverse possibilities of applying ion beams to synthesise, modify and analyse thin films and nanostructures. The materials studied range from semiconductors and oxides to metals and magnetic materials. These are analysed and optimised in terms of their electronic, magnetic, optical and structural functionality. The research topics are oriented towards potential applications in the field of nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, spintronics, as well as photovoltaics.
For industrial and commercial ion beam services, the HZDR’s transfer company, HZDR Innovation GmbH, offers fast and direct access to the accelerators on the basis of individual contracts. For the business field of ion technology, HZDR Innovation uses the facilities of the Ion Beam Centre at HZDR. Since the end of 2021, there has been a second production site in Slovakia. The many years of expertise in the field of ion technology, modern and powerful machines and highly qualified personnel enable rapid processing of standard implantations while maintaining high quality standards. Our strengths include the wide ion energy range, a large selection of available ion species and the fulfilment of complex special orders.
