The Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics (HIRST) offers a Doctoral program and conducts first-class research in six areas covering electronics, optic & photonics and micro- and nanotechnology.
- Research Area I: Enabling Technologies
RA I provides the technological base for fabrication of nanophotonic and teratronic components.
- Research Area II: Millimeter-Wave Electronics
RA II focusses on ultra-high speed miniaturized millimeter-wave modules and their cointegration with photonics.
- Research Area III: Integrated Nanophotonics and Plasmonics
RA III explores novel photonic and plasmonic device concepts, exploiting the benefits of large-scale silicon photonic integration.
- Research Area IV: High-Throughput Digital Signal Processing
RA IV investigates novel architectures for high-speed optical communications and real-time handling of terabit/s data streams.
- Research Area V: THz Technologies
RA V aims at devices for handling THz waves and the associated applications.
- Research Area VI: Teratronic Signal Processing and Terabit/s Communications
RA VI is devoted to optical high-speed communications and signal processing, building on the technologies and devices from the other research areas of HIRST.
