About Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart

Max Planck Institutes are built up solely around the world’s leading researchers. They themselves define their research subjects and are given the best working conditions, as well as free reign in selecting their staff.

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research investigate the electrical conductivity characteristics of solid materials.  Solid state materials include metals, ceramics and even crystals of organic molecules. Just how the structures of these materials affect their electrical, mechanical and magnetic properties, is what solid state researchers seek to understand. To this end, the researchers particularly focus on the nanoscopic scale solids, which behave differently compared to materials in larger dimensions. In order to miniaturize electronic circuits even further or to prepare for the electronics that will follow on from the silicon era, the behavior of these solids needs to be controlled.
