Welcome at the Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics
The Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics (HIRST) has ceased operations in 2019.
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) pursued an interdisciplinary approach in teaching and research that combined the traditional disciplines of physics, electrical engineering, computer science, and mechanical engineering. HIRST offered a training program that enables next-generation researchers to explore the immense potential of Teratronics.
