Brief description of my Organisation

The core competencies of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) in Freiburg, Germany, comprise the whole value chain of III/V compound semiconductor technologies. These are materials research, process development, circuit design and manufacture, module integration and subsystem assembly. In 2018 the total staff of the institute was 272 and the annual budget was 35 million Euros. The total floor space for offices and laboratories is 8000 sqm, with a clean room of 1000 sqm used for wafer epitaxy, and processing of device, circuits and packaging.
