Welcome to the homepage of the Advanced Thin Film Technology group at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. We are working on new materials for the next generations of energy-efficient components for microelectronics and energy conversion.
From tunable antennas in mobile communications to non-volatile memory devices in microelectronics, thin films often form the core of functional components and devices. A new thin-film material sometimes consists of only a few atomic layers, but contributes significantly to a desired property such as improved energy efficiency or higher performance.
The Advanced Thin Film Technology group is a global leader in the development of modern thin film technologies and new electronic materials. In self-designed thin-film systems we control materials atom by atom.
We focus on dielectric, magnetic and superconducting thin films for energy-efficient devices and components for a green future.
In addition to basic lectures on solid-state material properties, students can participate in a series of lectures on thin films and their applications.
