Technology Center Semiconductor Materials THM Freiberg

Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology

The subsidiary of IISB in Freiberg, the Fraunhofer Technology Centre of Semiconductor Materials (THM), is organized as a common department between the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology (IISB), Erlangen and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE), Freiburg.

THM supports industry in their developments of technologies for the production of innovative semiconductors to be used in micro- and optoelectronic as well as in photovoltaic.

The focal areas of research, which are investigated by THM in close collaboration with the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg, are the production of semiconductor substrates at reduced costs, the improvement of the material quality of crystalline silicon, and III-V compound semiconductors as well as the production of new materials.
