About Fraunhofer IAF

For the first time, it is now also possible to gain insights into our research work with our short film. Take a look behind the scenes of Fraunhofer IAF with us.

We do research for you – it's our pleasure

High frequency circuits for communication technology, robust gallium nitride voltage converters for efficient use of regenerative energies, infrared and UV detectors, semiconductor lasers for the detection of hazardous substances, micro-sensors for gas and fluid analysis, or innovative diamond technologies – this is only a small selection of developments with which the Fraunhofer IAF advances research and the development of innovative semiconductor technologies.

Based on III-V semiconductors we develop electronic and optoelectronic devices for a wide range of applications. As one of the leading research facilities worldwide in the area of III-V semiconductors we cover the the entire value chain: our core competences range from materials research, design, technology and circuits to modules and systems.
