About the project:
The research initiative SiLi-nano® (Silicon and light: from macro to nano) within the program “Centre of for Innovation Competence“ (ZIK) from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is one of the ambitious joint activities of three following institutes at the „Weinberg Campus“ in Halle:
The research focus of SiLi-nano® is on integrated silicon photonics, sensors, and photovoltaics. Its objectives are directed to the fundamental and applied research work of the following two main directions:
i) the crystal growth of specific semiconductor heterostructures (Si, Ge, Sn) as well asii) methods of nanostructuring, such as advanced lithographic and nanoimprint techniques.
