The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) is a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers in which 17 scientific-technical and medical-biological research centers have joined forces. The Helmholtz Association seeks to make a valuable contribution towards safeguarding and improving the foundations of human life. That is why it identifies and addresses the great challenges posed by society, science, and industry with its strategic top-level research programs.

The main activities of the Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research are devoted to materials research significant for future information technology and, for example, for the realisation of the German government’s Energy Concept by using ion beams as an important tool. These activities can be grouped into three main research topics: Materials processing and nanofabrication, Complex and correlated materials, and Dynamics at the nanoscale. The research aims towards potential applications in, e.g., nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, spintronics, and photovoltaics. The institute operates an Ion Beam Center, which is open to universities, other research institutes, and industrial partners. Additional activities are related to the free-electron laser at the superconducting electron accelerator ELBE for condensed matter research.

Within the MEMRIOX project, the HZDR houses the project coordination by the speaker Prof. Dr. Sibylle Gemming as well as the coordinator Dr. Peter Zahn. Moreover, one research group headed by Dr. Kay Potzger is located here. The HZDR provides the research groups as well as the partners with facilities for

  • growth of oxide and metallic thin films
  • (in-situ) ion irradiation, focused ion beam writing, single ion implantation
  • nanofabrication/lithography
  • electrical characterization
  • defect analysis using positron annihilation spectroscopy
  • theory

Visitors' address: Wilhelm-Johnen-Straße, 52428 Jülich | Postal address: 52425 Jülich, Germany

The Forschungs-Zentrum Jülich (FZJ) is a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres as the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. Forschungszentrum Jülich develops technologies that benefit research in Germany and worldwide in the areas of health, energy, and environment, as well as information technology. Computer simulations and neutron research are key instruments in materials research, for example, when designing innovative materials with special properties.

The Peter Grünberg Institute (PGI) is dedicated to fundamental research on novel physical concepts and emerging materials in information technology and related fields. It also provides a state-of-the-art platform for the development of process technologies, devices and innovative nanoelectronic material systems. The Institute for Electronic Materials (PGI-7) does research together with the partner institute at the RWTH Aachen University for the nanoelectronics of the future (Electronic Materials Research Laboratory EMRL). For this, they investigate electronic phenomena in oxides and electronically active organic molecules.

Within the MEMRIOX project, the FZJ houses the research group headed by Prof. Dr. Rainer Waser, Prof. Dr. Krysztof Szot, and Dr. Regina Dittmann. The FZJ provides the research group as well as the partners with facilities for

  • Processing technology (clean room, lithography, pattern transfer)
  • 3-target sputter tool
  • Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD)
  • Scanning electron microscopy (SEM),
  • UHV Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)
  • X-ray diffraction (XRD) / X-ray reflectivity (XRR)
  • Impedance analyzer
  • Probe station “Cascade”
  • Fast pulse measurement
  • UHV Oxide cluster (including PLD with in-situ RHEED, Multitarget sputtering, UHV AFM/STM, Omicron nanoESCA, XPS, Auger, LEED, SEM, Excimer Laser, UHV transport case
