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
Spiro-Bridged Ladder-Type Oligo(para-phenylene)s: Fine Tuning Solid State Structure and Optival Properties


In this recent CRC 951 research highlight the authors developed synthetic routes that allow to subsequently replace every pair of symmetry-equivalent alkyl groups in ladder-type quaterphenyl by a spiro-bifluorene group.

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.
