We investigate a broad range of topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology, from fundamental questions of quantum transport at low temperatures to the production of nanostructured materials and their application to future devices and commercial products. Our research contributes to the research fields Information and Energy as defined by the Helmholtz Association.
Renewable energies such as wind and solar power are in need of efficient energy storage systems.
Because chemistry allows the synthesis of atomically precise copies of a given molecule, it is the ultimate method of "bottom-up" nanofabrication.
Nanomaterials, comprised primarily of surfaces and interfaces, display surprising properties that we can influence through controllable stimuli.
By combining STED ideas with direct laser writing (DLW), we are able to produce photonic crystals with band gaps at visible frequencies.
Our research is focused on printing electronic devices based on inorganic nanomaterials and the development of novel printing technologies.
