The NETZ is part of the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CENIDE). Physicists, chemists and engineers research new materials for energy applications and develop scalable processes for their production and processing.

Mülheim Graduate School extended by 6 years

International Max Planck Research School continues

Mülheim Graduate School extended by 6 years

The cooperation in form of the International Max Planck Research School RECHARGE between the Max Planck Institut for Chemical Energy Conversion, the Universities Bochum, Bonn, Duisburg-Essen, and the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung continues for further six years. The school will continue to serve the purpose of providing a structured educational program for Ph.D. students. The program includes in-depth scientific courses as well as various soft-skill trainings.


Unexpected behaviour of the material

From 2D crystal to 1D wire

No volume, not even a surface: a one-dimensional material is like a wire and has properties that are completely different to its 3D counterpart. Physicists at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) have now discovered a system that, at warmer temperatures, forms self-organized wires consisting of only one row of individual atoms.
