The Technical University Berlin (TUB) is one of the largest universities of technology in Germany. It is successfully running three excellence clusters funded by DFG and will receive funding for three more clusters in the near future. TUB achieved the distinction of being ranked among the 100 best universities in the Times Higher Education (THE)-chart for Computer Science (42nd), Engineering and Technology (43rd), Physical Sciences (65th).
Within TUB, the objective of the Institute of Solid State Physics (IFKP) is the advancement of fundamental research and applications in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The groups of applied physics and optics are active in the CRC 787 “Nano-Photonics” (DFG), have a long-standing expertise in growth, and optical/electrical characterization – in particular of antimony-based quantum dots within the QD-Flash project (DFG) – and modeling of nano-structures. The experiments are accompanied and guided by comprehensive electronic structure modeling based on advanced 3D algorithms using own high-performance computing environments. The group has been involved for long time in research activities on nanostructures based on nitrides, oxides and arsenides.
