In the Doctoral School Solids4Fun (Building Solids for Function) the interplay between parameters and properties will be exemplarily investigated for different kinds of inorganic solids. This especially includes oxides, semiconductors and intermetallics in different forms, such as thin films, (nano-)composites, porous materials, quantum dots, photonic crystals, metamaterials or hybrid materials. Solids4Fun intends to address the challenging problem of interdisciplinarity by a well-balanced training program.
