Department of Hybrid Electronic Systems

Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Franz Kreupl

Our research focuses on the utilization of nano- and carbon-based materials in a wide range of electronic applications and circuits. Engineered functional nanomaterials like carbon nanotubes, nanowires and other carbon-based materials - like graphene or graphenic carbon materials - have the potential to significantly improve the performance of electronic devices, sensors, interconnects, energy- and information storage devices and circuits based on them. At the same time, nano- and carbon-based materials may offer a route towards a more sustainable form of materials used in engineering - a form which relies less on the precious limited natural resources. Our efforts to create new functional devices bridge classical electrical engineering and circuits with material science and physics.

The Department of Hybrid Electronic Systems is associated with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and forms a research and teaching unit with the Chair of Circuit Design.
