Summer School Microelectronics

International Summer School on Photonic Technologies for Harsh Environments and Space Applications

August 25th - 31st, 2019 in Frankfurt (Oder) and Rome


The Summer School 2019 was launched on the initiative of the Joint Lab between IHP and TH Wildau and their partner University of Rome Tor Vergata. The Joint Lab is researching on silicon-photonic devices and technologies, while at the University of Rome, a research group focuses on various applications. Purpose of the "German-Italian Summer School" was to provide inside view to recent developments in the field of photonics technologies, circuits and systems. In addition, novel developments and challenges for high-performance technologies in harsh environments have been presented and discussed. The topics were presented by experts from academia and industry. The target audience were master and PhD students and postdocs in the fields of physics, materials science, computer science or electrical engineering.

Participants, organizers and researchers of Instituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) in the lab during the visit of INFN in Fiscati/Italy.


We were pleased to welcome 18 participants from 8 different countries: Italy, Poland, Austria, Tunisia, Egypt, India, Pakistan and Germany.





The program and lectures of this year´s Summer School were wide-ranging. The participants learned about novel microelectronic and photonic technologies which enable the future demands of the society for increasing high speed data transfer and broadband communication systems.




Moreover the program included a visit of the photonic lab and a cleanroom tour and gave a lot of possibilities to talk to the numerous speakers and scientists of IHP.


The Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN; "National Institute for Nuclear Physics") is the coordinating institution for nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics in Italy. The Visit of INFN included an introducing lecture, a lab visit and a guided tour through the visitors center and Dafne, a Synchrotron Radiation Facility.


Our social program in Germany included a Welcome Barbecue, a sightseeing tour through Frankfurt (Oder) and a boat tour on the Oder.


In Italy we had a great walk through the ancient Rome, a delicious farewell dinner and a sightseeing tour at night in the Fourm Augustus and the Forum Ceasar.


The building and the infrastructure of the IHP were funded by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union, funds of the Federal Government and also funds of the Federal State of Brandenburg.
