IHRS NanoNet was funded by Initiative and Networking Fund of Helmholtz Association (VH-KO-606) until Dec 2020.

NanoNet+ Annual Workshop 2022

The Annual Workshop of the International Helmholtz Research School (IHRS) for Nanolectronic Networks (NanoNet) and the Departments of Nanoelectronics and of Semiconductor Materials of HZDR took place at the Jugendherberge Görlitz on October 4-6, 2022. This was exactly 10 years after the foundation of NanoNet in 2012.
The topics of the workshop are 2D Materials and ultra-high doped semiconductors: electronics, photonics and sensing.
