Core Research Areas

At PDI, we believe in fostering cross-pollination of ideas and driving innovation through our interdisciplinary Core Research Areas (CReAs).

Our Core Research Areas encompass broad themes within the field of materials science, covering a wide range of methodologies and topics. These areas include Nanofabrication, Nanoanalytics, and Nanoelectronics, which are methodically-driven, as well as III-V Nanowires for Optoelectronics, Control of Elementary Excitations by Acoustic Fields, and Intersubband Emitters: GaAs-based Quantum-Cascade Lasers, which are topically-driven.

Our cross-departmental structure enables us to tackle complex challenges and discover new opportunities that transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. By bringing together researchers, engineers, and technicians from across the institute, we create a collaborative environment that encourages the exchange of ideas and enhances our problem-solving capabilities. This dynamic synergy often leads to breakthroughs that would be difficult to achieve within the confines of a single department.
