The long-term objective of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) is to ensure excellence in research in those fields that are of great relevance to society such as key technologies, the structure of matter, energy, and health. In strategic partnerships with research and industry, we are addressing the new challenges of modern industrial societies which revolve around the following questions:
- How does matter behave in strong fields and at small-scale dimensions?
- How can malignant tumors be identified at an early stage and treated effectively?
- How can people and the environment be protected from risks posed by technology?
Our six large-scale research facilities provide unique opportunities for experiments in order to answer these questions. These facilities are also available to external users.
The main activities of the Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research are devoted to materials research significant for future information technology by using ion beams as an important tool for this. These activities can be grouped into six main research topics. The research aims towards potential applications in, e.g., nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, spintronics, and photovoltaics.
