In order to realize new device concepts and to improve and extend our current devices portfolio we also investigate and develop novel materials. One significant focus is the growth of high purity as well as intentionally doped single-crystalline diamond layers for use in quantum technologies, e.g. as single photon sources or high resolution magnetic field probes, or in next generation power electronics based on diamond. In addition, we concentrate on optimizing nanocrystalline diamond layers, graphene and Aluminum Scandium Nitride (AlScN) as an emerging piezoelectric material.
