Communication & Navigation

A significant part of data storage and transmission technologies is based on modern semiconductor crystals.

The IKZ section Semiconductor Crystals, often in collaboration with the IKZ Section Fundamental Description, deals with the efficiency of growth processes and the quality improvement of those crystals.

Examples are given by compound semiconductors like GaAs and InP as well as Czochalski SiGe crystals.

A further example is given by lead-free piezoelectric thin film heterostructures from IKZ´s section Oxide Films for advanced sensors in Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
