NETZ

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.

Understanding Metal Insulator Materials

The hot electron's effect

You can't really see them, but you can follow the energy flow like in a flip book: Physicists from the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) have investigated the energy transfer in a metal insulator material and published their results in "Physical Review B". In the long term, they could contribute to solving the heat problem in microelectronics through targeted material design.

Nano Platinum for Neurological Implants

Normal movements without trembling or cramping - this is what brain pacemakers allow people with Parkinson's disease to do. High quality and long-term stability of the implanted electrodes are essential in order to minimize follow-up operations. To this end, researchers at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) want to coat the implants with metal nanoparticles and thus improve the contact between implant and tissue. Dr. Brian Giera from the Livermore National Laboratory (USA), currently a Mercator Fellow at the UDE, is also involved.
