Functional Metal-Semiconductor Hybrid Systems
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Ulrich Merkt
Coordinator: Dr. Katrin Buth
The Graduiertenkolleg (Research Training Group) "Functional metal-semiconductor hybrid systems"
deals with the combination of semiconductors with normal metals, superconductors and ferromagnets.
Examples are sensors based on the extraordinary magnetoresistance effect or superconducting
Josephson field-effect transistors. To understand and describe the physical and technological
properties of hybrid systems, new methods and efficient algorithms will be developed for the
simulation of real systems. The research program is complemented by an appropriate
The participating scientists
come from the Departments of Physics, Informatics and Mathematics of the University of Hamburg.
