Popular science description

The research at the Division of Solid-State Electronics is organised in two focus areas: Electronics for Sustainable Energy and Electronics for Smart Life. The technological base for our research is thin-film technology and semiconductor processing using the in-house state-of-art cleanroom facilities, supported by device and process simulation as well as electrical and photovoltaic characterization. For energy-related research, we are world-leading in using devices based on thin films to convert solar energy to electricity at very high efficiency. For smart-life related research, we perform cutting-edge research on novel electronic biosensors with enhanced signal and reduced noise. The Division also conducts other research projects confined in the two focus areas.
