The CRC 951 - Hybrid Inorganic/Organic Systems for Opto-Electronics (HIOS) - is an interdisciplinary effort bringing together scientists with complementary expertise from three universities and two non-university institutions. The goal is the merger of inorganic semiconductors, conjugated organic materials, and metal nanostructures into novel hybrid structures. Elucidating and tailoring the fundamental chemical, electronic, and photonic interactions in these systems will enable us the development of functional elements exhibiting superior opto-electronic functionalities not achievable with any of the individual material classes alone. The CRC 951 was founded in July 2011 and is currently in it's second funding period (2015-2019).

Recent Research Highlights
Limitations of Particle-Based Spasers


The authors of this CRC 951 research highlight present a semiclassical analytic model for spherical core-shell surface plasmon lasers. The published model gives a clear view on gain and resonator requirements, as well as on the output characteristics.

Strong Coupling between Surface Plasmon Polaritons and Molecular Vibrations


The authors of this CRC 951 research highlight have demonstrated the strong coupling of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) and molecular vibrations in an organic/inorganic plasmonic hybrid structure consisting of a ketone-based polymer deposited on top of a silver layer.
