The development and the investigation of innovative acoustoelectronic systems require a sophisticated crystal characterization and various thin film deposition technologies as well as dedicated methods for thin film analysis. To meet these specific demands we are constantly improving and adapting our competences. In the framework of collaboration and joint research projects you can build on our profound know‑how in the following research fields:
- Calculation of acoustoelectronic systems
- Deposition techniques for functional thin films and thin film systems including multilayers and gradient layers on piezoelectric substrates
- Comprehensive characterization of thin film systems and piezoelectric substrate materials
- Enhancement of analytical techniques dedicated to acoustoelectronics
- Characterization of high-frequency acoustoelectronic devices
- Lifetime and failure analysis
- Innovative applications of SAW actuators and sensors
Please, contact us for your specific question!
Scientific collaboration with SAWLab Saxony is possible for interested externals from research and industry. Previous collaboration frameworks included governmental funded joint research projects (e.g. DFG, BMBF, AiF, BMWi, ZIM, EU), industry funded proof-of-principle studies or R&D orders.
Our main areas of collaboration include:
- investigations of acoustoelectronic, microacoustic and acoustofluidic devices (electrical, optical, acoustical, structural),
- investigations of piezoelectric substrate materials, e.g. high-precision characterization of single crystals and ceramics over a temperature range (4K … 1200K),
- investigations and characterization of (structured) thin films via various methods,
- thin film deposition and structuring,
- numerical simulation of microacoustic wave generation, propagation and interaction effects,
- custom design, fabrication and evaluation of SAW devices for specific applications (e.g. sensors, actuators),
- specific tests with own developments for new applications.
