Targeting tiny contacts

Today, basic units of computer chips are often thinner than a human hair. However, electric current flow is determined not only by the semiconductor components, but also by their interconnects. Dr. Regina Hoffmann from the KIT Physical Institute studies the structure and electronic properties of these nanocontacts and has now been the first researcher in Karlsruhe to be awarded the renowned ERC Starting Grant of the European Research Council for her project.
