Organic and molecular electronics is an innovative class of electronics with huge market potential in four key application areas: displays; photovoltaics; lighting; and integrated smart systems. While the technology is novel it is also able to be harnessed in many current applications, providing reduced cost and low energy manufacturing processes. The Master’s in Organic and Molecular Electronics Program strives to educate young professionals in this innovative field. The international two-year full-time study program is taught in English and coordinated by IAP and cfaed at TU Dresden. It offers an interdisciplinary study program comprising physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, and materials science. The close collaboration with industry partners enables a highly practice-oriented education.Application deadline: people from Non-EU countries: 31 May, people from EU countries: 15 JulyMore info here

cfaed's Chair for Network Dynamics (Prof. M. Timme), in cooperation with several scientific groups in Göttingen and Cape Town/South Africa, investigated the conditions of the spread of COVID-19 cases in countries of the Gobal South. Their scenario analysis for a region in South Africa combines statistical socio-economic and travel survey data from more than 100,000 individuals, based on employment status, household size, age group and income level together with a detailed 24-hour travel diary component and integrates them into an agent-based traffic simulation of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. The findings suggest that countermeasures are required to be especially rapid and severe to keep the number of critical patients below the capacity set by locally available intensive care units (ICUs).

Digital cameras as well as many other electronic devices need light-sensitive sensors. In order to cater for the increasing demand for optoelectronic components of this kind, industry is searching for new semiconductor materials. They are not only supposed to cover a broad range of wavelengths but should also be inexpensive. A hybrid material, developed in Dresden, fulfills both these requirements. Himani Arora, a physics PhD student at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), demonstrated that this metal-organic framework can be used as a broadband photodetector. As it does not contain any cost-intensive raw materials, it can be produced inexpensively in bulk.

It already belongs to the Cluster’s classics: The microelectronics summer school "Dresden Microelectronics Academy" at cfaed will - hopefully - also take place in 2020. Even if, in view of the current crisis, it is not yet possible to look reliably into the future, the organizers at cfaed and the semiconductors industry are optimistic and continue to push ahead with the planning of this unique summer school. Registrations are now possible. As always, places are limited, as the exclusive insights into production and processes at industry giants Globalfoundries, X-FAB, Infineon or Bosch can only be gained with small groups.

The "Taicang High-Tech Park" near Shanghai (China) is donating 10,000 urgently needed respiratory protective masks to TU Dresden and its Carl Gustav Carus University Hospital.
"We are extremely grateful for this gesture of friendship and this strong signal of international solidarity and I am personally deeply touched", says Prof. Hans Müller-Steinhagen, Rector of TU Dresden. "In times of need, such a humanitarian gesture has a significance that goes far beyond its mere material value."
