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
