Emmy Noether Junior Research Group

Metal coordination nano structures (MCNS)

The demand for new approaches to information technology is increasingly fuelled by the fundamental, and imminent, limitations that now arise in current device technology. The Emmy Noether research group investigates the fabrication and microscopic characterisation of organometallic materials, enabling new approaches to information technology at the atomic scale. With a low-temperature scanning probe microscopy-based approach, the group especially sets a focus on charge transfer properties at the atomic-scale in these novel materials.

18.03.2021AG Vorstellung, Bachelorarbeiten 2021
Sie sind fasziniert von der Nanowelt? Sie interessieren sich für Abbildung und Manipulation einzelner Atome und Moleküle? Oder arbeiten gerne an der Schnittstelle von Physik, Chemie und Informatik?
Dann besuchen Sie uns digital am 18.03.2021 um 11:00h zur (digitalen) Vorstellung der Arbeitsgruppe im BBB Raum (offen ab etwa 10:45h): https://webconf.uni-osnabrueck.de/b/phi-lti-sva-4fv.
Wir stellen Ihnen kurz die laufenden Projekte sowie das Labor vor und freuen uns dann auf Gespräche mit Ihnen!
01.01.2021Project VRnano started
Funded by BMBF, we will perform advanced SPM measurements in three dimensions by implementing experiment control in virtual reality. This is a joint project with Prof. Philipp Lensing (FH Osnabrück) and mindQ GmbH & Co. KG (Osnabrück).
