Our service offers can be provided for research purposes or as individual items. In addition to research of new crystalline materials and the development of crystal growing technologies, we also offer expertise in characterization, equipment development, crystal processing and modelling.
We also provide our expertise as consultancy or expert opinions.
Based on our results from research, application-oriented knowledge and practical experience, we develop new technologies and processes for growing crystalline materials.
An overview of currently used methods and our portfolio of special equipment can be found here.
We offer support and advice in the following areas of development:
In cooperation with our plant engineering facility, plants and their components are developed or modified for growth. One example is the development of the KRISTMAG® technology for crystal growth in the magnetic field, which was awarded the Berlin-Brandenburg Innovation Prize.
The IKZ has far-reaching expertise in the development of crystalline materials. We are pleased to provide our materials for research purposes.
The technological development of high-quality crystals as well as efficient crystal growing methods places high demands on the conception of the plant construction. At the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth, these tasks are carried out by the Equipment Engineering Group in close consultation with scientists.
The working group, consisting of engineers and technicians, has many years of sound knowledge in the field of scientific plant and equipment construction. It develops plant components that have not been commercially available so far and thus enables interesting new research approaches.
The main focus of our Equipment Engineering Group is on the following fields of activity:
The institute is one of the few research institutions with its own expertise in the field of plant engineering, which is why we are pleased to offer our services to external partners.
The Leibniz-Institute for Crystal Growth offers numerical modelling and feasibility studies as a service for external partners on request. Our range of services includes the following services:
Our competences in Simulation & Characterization includes the physical characterization of crystalline materials, atomic scale investigations by electron microscopy as well as chemical and thermodynamic analysis.
We provide our expertise for research and development projects and offer consultations and measurements on request.
We can assume service and research orders for industry, universities and other research institutions, ranging from the fabrication of machined samples to the development of technologies and related documentations. Special demands on geometry and surface quality of various samples can be fulfilled in short time and with high quality.
In cooperation with the characterization group we ensure a high quality standard.
Our portfolio includes the following services:
