Collaborative research centre at Humboldt-Universität successful in launching second funding period

CRC Hybrid Inorganic/Organic Systems for Opto-Electronics (HIOS) to continue another four years

Collaborative research centre (CRC) 951 scientists perform cutting-edge research on hybrid systems that unite inorganic semiconductors, metal nanostructures, and conjugated organic materials, with the aim to realize and tailor novel opto-electronic functions. The achievements made during the first funding period (2011-2015) laid the foundations for the next four years of exciting HIOS-research.

In the long term, the CRC aims for solid-state opto-electronic devices that exhibit superior performance compared to those based on any of the individual material classes alone. The CRC's coordinator and vice-coordinator, Norbert Koch and Oliver Benson (both members of IRIS Adlershof), are delighted with the success in obtaining continued funding from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), and they look forward to the joint work of 25 principal investigators from physics and chemistry of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (coordinating university), Technische Universität Berlin, Universität Potsdam, Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie, and Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.
