Universal Hybrid Optoelectronic Platform
As the exit from nuclear and fossil fuel energy comes closer and the demand for information and global communication increases, new concepts are called for which allow a low energy consumption. Nano-optoelectronic devices such as single photon sources are one possible solution to achieve fast, secure and low energy consumption data transfer. However, the preparation of such devices is in many ways difficult and resources consuming. Researchers at the PGI-9 devised a novel hybrid optoelectronic platform [1], which greatly simplifies production technology. The platform allows for an electrically induced emission in a wide range of wavelengths and has the potential for extreme low-energy consumption.

Research Topic

Semiconductor nanowires can be formed directly by using the so-called bottom-up approach. In contrast to the usual top-down method where optical or electron beam lithography is employed, this approach has the potential to simply the fabrication of low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures enormously.

What alternatives are there to present computers based on crystals of silicon or other semiconductors? What is – from a physical point of view – the smallest possible device that can be used to perform computational processes? Is there a minimum amount of energy required for floating point operations?
