Research at the CAM focuses primarily on organic and printable materials for electronics and optoelectronics. The research topics can be categorized in four core areas:
- Material synthesis
- Characterization of materials
- Material processing and device fabrication
- Modelling of material properties
Currently, 30 research groups are working at CAM or are involved with the CAM. These groups come from different faculties and institutes of Heidelberg University, that is, physics, chemistry and applied mathematics. Each group is associated with one of the four areas.
As given by the statutes, CAM is divided into a core area ("Kernbereich") and an associated area ("Erweiterter Bereich"):
