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 June 2011 and is currently in it's second funding period (2015-2019).

Recent Research Highlights
Metal−Semiconductor Nanoparticle Hybrids Formed by Self-Organization: A Platform to Address Exciton−Plasmon Coupling

In this recent CRC 951 research highlight, a flexible model system based on colloidal nanoparticles that can form hybrid combinations by self-organization is shown and a full quantum theory for the luminescence dynamics is developed.

Structure of p-Sexiphenyl Nanocrystallites in ZnO Revealed by High-Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy

In this CRC 951 research highlight, the structure of para-sexiphenyl (6P) nanocrystallites embedded in ZnO single crystals is resolved by cross-sectional high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) combined with image contrast simulations and X-ray diffraction measurements.

Topically, HIOS is part of the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences (IRIS Adlershof) where hybrid systems are one of the strategic focal points. IRIS is also supporting the CRC 951 by providing office space and assistance in the organization of scientific events.
