The group’s work is interdisciplinary focusing on the understanding, discovery, and targeted design of materials for the development of future electronic device generations, including power electronics, memory, and biosensors. Beyond the synthesis and development of novel growth methods for high quality thin films, nanostructured layers, and nanostructures of inorganic materials, a main focus lies on the characterisation of materials predominantly using X-ray spectroscopy techniques. The group applies and develops both laboratory- and synchrotron-based spectroscopic methods to study in particular the electronic structure of device-relevant bulk materials and material heterostructures. A major area of development are characterisation setups and strategies to explore surfaces, interfaces, and buried layers in device-relevant material structures.
