Welcome at the Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics

Teratronics is a multi-disciplinary research field embracing key aspects of optics and photonics, high-frequency electronics, and high-speed digital signal processing. Teratronic systems are characterized by an intimate and inseparable co-integration of these elements.

The Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics (HIRST) pursues an interdisciplinary approach in teaching and research that combines the traditional disciplines of physics, electrical engineering, computer science, and mechanical engineering. HIRST offers a training program that enables next-generation researchers to explore the immense potential of Teratronics.

We invite you to contribute to this strongly expanding research field. More information on our PhD program can be found here.
