Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ)
Crystals are the basis for modern technologies. With their high structural perfection and tailor-made composition, they are used in microelectronics, optoelectronics, power electronics, photovoltaics, optics and laser technology, in sensors and acousto-electronics and for basic research. At the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ), the scientific and technical foundations of the growth and production of crystalline solids are explored experimentally and theoretically. Methods of crystal growth from the melt, gas phase and liquid are used to produce crystals, thin crystalline layers and nanostructures.
In addition to research activities, the Institute also fulfils a service function at the national level by providing crystals and technologies for project partners and customers in research institutions and industry.
