    Aluminium-based semiconductors promise even greater efficiency

    Highly efficient power semiconductors should create the conditions for a wide range of new applications from electromobility to artificial intelligence. This is the aim of the recently launched joint project "Power transistors based on AlN (ForMikro-LeitBAN)", which is coordinated by the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut for highest frequency technologies in Berlin.

    High-power lasers with buried implantation for current confinement

    The FBH has fabricated broad area lasers using a 2-step epitaxial growth process with an intermediate implantation of ions outside of the active laser stripe. The second growth step removes the crystal damage and activates the implanted dopants so that highly resistive regions are formed.



Talents & Skilled Personnel

Recruiting and securing skilled personnel plays a vital role at the institute - FBH coordinates projects related to:

  • vocational orientation
  • apprenticeship
  • advanced vocational training

The FBH is also the central contact for the respective issues in the Photonics Cluster.
