Welcome to the workgroup of Prof. Nienhaus

Research Interest

The proof and investigation of electronic stimulations with chemical reactions on metal surfaces. Metal-semiconductor interfaces. The chemical, electronic, and photonic spectroscopy of nanoparticles. The structural, electronic, and dynamic characteristics of pure and modified semiconductor surfaces (AIGaN, SiC, III-V, Si).


Thin metal film electronic devices deliver a current when exposed to reactive gases. This is evidence for direct conversion of chemical to electronic energy and for non-adiabatic energy dissipation during surface reactions.
