Next-generation nanoelectronics and nanophotonics

The Circuit Technology workgroup is concerned with the design of integrated nanoelectronic and nanophotonic circuits and systems and is headed by Prof. Dr. J. Christoph Scheytt and apl. Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Müller.

We research the design of integrated digital, analogue and photonic systems. We are particularly interested in the realisation of electronic-photonic integrated circuits (EPIC). The joint realisation of electronic and photonic circuits in one chip or in a hybrid multi-chip system can often significantly exceed the properties of conventional purely electronic or purely photonic systems.

Research

We research, develop and evaluate methods and tools to design secure software systems from the ground up. In many software development processes currently in use, the security of software systems is unfortunately still treated as secondary. As a result, security aspects are often considered too late.

Research topics

Teaching

We are intensively involved in the teaching and training of students and young academics such as doctoral candidates, post-doctoral candidates and junior professors with the aim of providing them with the skills they need to shape the future.

Courses

Projects

We can provide companies with significant impetus for innovation and for maintaining their competitiveness. There are many approaches to this. They range from the placement of graduates through collaborative projects to contract developments, which we generally carry out via our spin-offs.

TamiFlex

TamiFlex is our solution to the dreaded "reflection problem" in static programme analysis for Java. With the help of so-called reflections, Java programmes can call methods and access fields and classes indirectly by passing a string to a special method of the Reflections API. These strings can be generated at runtime.
