NETZAbout Us

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.


Semiconductor Quantum Dot Devices

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.

Synthesis of Inorganic Heteroalkenes

Future options for storing CO2 Synthesis of Inorganic Heteroalkenes

Group 13/15 heteroalkenes RMER' with M-E double bonds (M = B-Tl; E = N-Bi) offer promising potential for bond activation reactions, but they are difficult to prepare. A team led by CENIDE professor Stephan Schulz now describes new synthetic methods for group 13 metallapnictenes in no less than three articles in the journal "Angewandte Chemie". They allow for the preparation of preparative amounts as a basis for systematic reactivity studies.

Predicting the Performance of Catalysts

Award for Electrochemist Predicting the Performance of Catalysts

Green electricity should be available as soon as possible, at best from all power outlets: electrochemical processes are the basis for a sustainable energy, but they need new, high-performance catalyst materials. Theoretical calculations help to avoid dead ends and to focus on the most promising candidates. A chemist from the CRC 247 has decisively improved this performance prediction and has now received an award for his achievements. He published his work in the trade journal Electrochimica Acta.

Humboldt-Stipendiatin in der Nanostrukturtechnik


Von Aerosolen ist wegen Corona aus medizinischer Sicht derzeit oft die Rede. Es gibt aber auch Produkt-Aerosole, die in Technologie und Industrie eine wichtige Rolle spielen. Die Humboldt-Stipendiatin Dr. Qian Mao untersucht in Simulationen, wie sich diese Aerosole bei der Herstellung von Nanopartikeln formieren, bestimmt ihre chemische Beschaffenheit sowie die Größe der Teilchen. Sie ist derzeit Gast bei CENIDE-Mitglied Professor Einar Kruis an der UDE-Fakultät für Ingenieurwissenschaften.


Neu an der UDE: Karin Everschor-Sitte


Die herkömmliche Computertechnik stößt bald an ihre Grenzen: „Magnetische Nanostrukturen eignen sich für neuartige energiesparende Rechenkonzepte“, sagt Prof. Dr. Karin Everschor-Sitte. Die neue UDE-Professorin für Theoretische Physik erforscht an der Fakultät für Physik unter anderem die Physik von magnetischen Wirbeln, sogenannten Skyrmionen, und wie diese genutzt werden können.


Der Goldene Blogger

And the winner is ... Minkorrekt!

Er ist der älteste und wichtigste Social Media-Award Deutschlands: der Goldene Blogger. In diesem Jahr ging er in der Kategorie Wissenschaftsblog an UDE-Physiker Dr. Nicolas Wöhrl und seinen Kollegen Dr. Reinhard Remfort, der an der UDE promoviert wurde. Sie erhielten die Auszeichnung für ihren Blog "Methodisch inkorrekt!", kurz Minkorrekt.
