The Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth is a research and service institute, which is theoretically and experimentally investigating the scientific-technical fundamentals of crystal growth, processing and physico-chemical characterization of crystalline solids. The materials presently in development are of fundamental importance in micro- , opto- and power electronics, in photovoltaics, in opto- and laser technology, in acousto-electronics and sensor technology as well as for fundamental research.
The research activities of the institute include bulk single crystals as well as crystalline layers and nanostructures, but also the development of comprehensive crystal growth technologies. With the combination of bulk crystal growth and layer deposition, the institute possesses ideal conditions to produce customized substrate/layer combinations.
The research and service tasks of the institute include:
Prof. Dr. Thomas Schröder
Administrative Director (Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V.):
Dr. Manuela Urban
Scientific Assistant to the Director:
