Electronic Materials

Our research, undertaken in close cooperation with our partner institute at RWTH Aachen University, focuses on the nanoelectronics of the future. To this end, we investigate electronic phenomena in oxides and electronically-active organic molecules.

Success for PGI: Funding for Five Projects in the DFG Priority Programme “Memristive Devices Toward Smart Technical Systems”

Five research projects involving the Peter Grünberg Institute are set to receive funding from the German research foundation Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), as part of the DFG Priority Programme SPP2262 “Memristive Devices Toward Smart Technical Systems”.


Tag des PGI 2020 - “Opportunities Through Change” and the annual Institute Assembly

Following on from last year’s very successful first “PGI-Tag”, this year’s Assembly will again be accompanied by entertaining and informative events. Due to the pandemic, this event mainly has to take place virtually. We are organising an online event from the Auditorium of the Central Library, which will enable everyone to participate and hopefully once more bring together the many different areas of the institute. 



New concepts in information technology.



Computer simulation with high-performance computers.
