Six Institutes of the Humboldt University of Berlin
Humboldt's Mathematics and Natural sciences Campus includes the Institutes of Chemistry, Geography, Computer science, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology with around 8,000 students and 1,000 staff members.
Eleven Non-university Research Institutes
11 institutes with a staff of 1,600 – many of which with roots in the former East German Academy of Science – are working in the fields of light, materials and models: BAM (analytical chemistry, reference materials) // BTU (air chemistry) // DLR (planetary research, transportation systems) // FBH (high frequency technology) //Fraunhofer-Institut für Offene Kommunikationssysteme FOKUS (computer architecture, software engineering) // HZB (materials, energy) // IKZ (crystal growth) // ISAS (analytical sciences) // MBI (nonlinear optics, short pulse spectroscopy) // PTB (photon radiometry)
The institutes' umbrella organization is the "Joint Initiative of Non-University Research Institutions in Adlershof" IGAFA.
Adlershof's Key Research Areas: Light, Materials and Models
3D-television, super-effective solar cells, traffic free highways, ultra-clear Mars cameras, the brightest light for mega-microscopes, energy saving light from light diodes, pure silicon counted to the last atom, thought powered machines... that’s what we research here in Adlershof.
- Optical Technology and photonics: opto-electronics and nano-optics // uv- and x-ray technology // laser research and techniques // OT in traffic and space research
- Information Technology: software technology simulation // signal processing // virtual realities
- Sustainable ressources: environmental research // energy technologies // photovoltaics
- Material research and microsystem technology: new materials // new processes // catalysis research // nanotechnologies
- Polymer-coated catalyst protects "artificial leaf": HZB Scientists produce hydrogen by means of solar energy
- Excellent research: Adlershof is profiting from the university’s excellence status
- Physicists let magnetic dipoles interact on the nanoscale for the first time: “Of great technical interest for future hard disk drives”
- Snap shots of one of life's central processes: Human Frontier Science Program provides funding of 900,000 US Dollars in support of international...
