Ihren Beitrag leisten für die grüne Energieversorgung der Zukunft wollen die Mitglieder des UA-Ruhr-Schwerpunktprogramms „Materials Chain“. Daher lädt das Netzwerk am 25. und 26. zum digitalen Workshop "Materials for Energy". Alle Interessierten sind eingeladen, sich per Mail anzumelden. Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei.
At NETZ, we seek to develop sustainable methods for each step in the process chain: from synthesizing and refining nanostructured materials to integrating these materials into finished components and devices. In each step, we strive to analyze and understand the mechanisms that operate on every relevant scale. This expertise enables us to formulate rules that are as generally applicable as possible – and to tailor the outcome of an individual process to reach the desired goal.
CURRENT RESEARCH Processes for synthesis of nanomaterials with customized properties.
GOAL Our goal is to understand the formation and growth processes of nanomaterials and, based on this knowledge, to produce specific materials with tailored properties. We use this know-how to develop suitable processes all the way through to industrial applications.
PhD Award of the Verband der Elektrotechnik Semiconductor Quantum Dot Devices
On November 20, Dr. Franziska Muckel will be honored for her outstanding dissertation. She is awarded this year's doctoral prize by the Rhine-Ruhr Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (VDE). She received her doctorate in March 2019 from the UDE in the working group of Prof. Gerd Bacher.
Breakthrough for Magnetic Resonance Imaging New Antenna is an All-round Talent
Anyone needing a tomography gets the clearest possible images of an organ or other body structure slice by slice. But the further inside the potential problem lies, the more difficult it is to obtain high-resolution images in magnetic resonance imaging. An international team of scientists led by the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) has developed a high-frequency coil that allows for much better range inside the body – among other advantages. The scientific journal "Nature Communications" covers the topic.
Robotic Arm Helps with Analysis Catalytic Activity of Individual Particles
Analyzing tiny nanoparticles separately is a challenge.A team from the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) and Ruhr-Universität Bochum has developed a new technique that could make the process much easier. The journal "Angewandte Chemie" covers the method in its latest issue.
