Research at the Leibniz Institut for Cystal Growth
During the last 10 years, the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ) has become the major research center for crystal growth in Europe.
IKZ has also a strong international reputation in research and development of crystalline materials and new inventive technologies in the field of crystal growth. These materials support the innovation process in the area of power electronics, microelectronics, photovoltaics and other fields of optics. Moreover, the institute focusses on research approaches used to support the value chain, which covers everything from substrate growth to wafer preparation to the deposition of functional layers which may provide customized properties.
IKZ and its research contribute, directly or indirectly, to all areas of sustainable applications e.g. environment, mobility, communication, and information.
