Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions

Content

Low dimensional structures: quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots. Electronic, optical, transport properties of nanostructures. Quantum semiconductor devices. Fabrication and characterization techniques of nanotechnology. Applications of nanostructures, nanodevices and nanosystems. The bottom-up approach to nanotechnology: introduction to molecular electronics and optoelectronics. Organic materials for electronics: self-assembled monolayers; conducting polymers; carbon nanotubes. Circuit implementations and architectures for nanostructures: quantum cellular automata and cellular non linear networks. Introduction to quantum computing. Through the Projektpraktikum, it will be possible to work on a special nano-project, selected from a list of topics covering both experimental and computational topics.

Description of exams and course work

Modulprüfung mit folgenden Bestandteilen: - Abschlussklausur

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?

Biophysics

Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
