This specialization belongs to the master's programme Electrical Engineering.
The research group Integrated Devices and Systems (IDS) specializes in integrated devices: think transistors, diodes, and transducers. They invent and improve (micro)fabrication processes and acquire a fundamental understanding of underlying device physics. They demonstrate these on a variety of devices using the Nanolab fabrication facility, and develop the science of working principles and design, with the aim to transfer this knowledge to industry. They consider systems aspects in all stages of the device research and create prototype systems that are essential to show proof of principle of the devices.
The research spans from materials via process integration and device physics to device reliability. Examples of these four are: deposition and characterization of few-nm thin metal films; ultra-low-noise accelerometers for the detection of gravitation waves; transistors and capacitors employing the negative-capacitance effect; and self-healing in CMOS transistors.
The specialization Integrated Devices and Systems is directly linked with the research group Integrated Devices and Systems and the research institute MESA+. This means you will have excellent peer guidance and will be working on the newest challenges.
