The Paul Drude Institute for Solid State Electronics (PDI) carries out research in materials science and solid state physics with special emphasis on low-dimensional systems in nanostructured semi-conductors. The unique properties of low-dimensional systems are strongly influenced by the structural and energetic properties of interfaces. Therefore, by intentionally adjusting the nature and distribution of internal interfaces in a static and dynamic way, the mechanical, optical, electronic, and magnetic properties of nanostructured solids can be tuned over a wide range using materials engineering at the atomic level. The main fabrication technique is molecular-beam epitaxy.
