  • Picture of the month: Crystal growth of indium nitrite nanorods

    01. February 2017 – InN is a semiconductor material with a direct bandgap of ~0.7 eV and is a promising material for applications in next generation photovoltaics such as hot carrier solar cells. InN nanorods are fabricated by a chemical vapor deposition technique using a vapor-liquid-solid growth method. The scanning... more »

  • EAM Call for Science Sets Sail

    17. January 2017 – Drawing on mankind’s earliest spirit of adventure, FAU created “Science Sets Sail” as a trip of scientific discovery on the Baltic Sea. FAU researchers and their guests from the Baltic region and beyond will forge new ideas together on the sailing ship ‘Thor Heyerdahl.’ EAM is one of the nine... more »

  • Picture of the month: Single-walled TiO2 nanotubes for improved lithium storage

    01. January 2017 – Nanostructured anode materials are greatly demanded for electrochemical energy storage systems based on lithium ion intercalation devices. At EAM, we develop novel TiO2 nanostructures for improved performance in battery, solar-cell and water-splitting applications. Self-organized anodic TiO2... more »

  • Picture of the month: Tilting crystals in biomimetic calcium carbonate thin films

    01. December 2016 – Biominerals are extremely tough. This arises due to an ingenious hierarchical design combined with a high crystalline order which forms by a non-classical crystallization of an amorphous precursor. In some species, this solid-amorphous to crystalline transformation generates crystal lattice tilting... more »

  • Physikalischer Video-Adventskalender

    28. November 2016 – 24-mal leicht verdauliche Physik bis Weihnachten Wieso liegen die Nüsse im Müsli immer oben? Lässt sich Weihnachtstee in Solarzellen verwandeln? Und gibt es eigentlich etwas, das schneller ist als Licht? Antworten auf diese Fragen gibt der Adventskalender der Physikdidaktik – in 24 spannenden... more »

  • Young Scientist 2016 Award for Dispersion Analysis and Materials Testing for GS AMP Member Johannes Walter

    10. November 2016 – One session of this year‘s International Workshop Dispersion Analysis and Materials Testing in Berlin on September 26 – 27, 2016 was again dedicated to the Young Scientist Award (YSA) 2016. This year’s YSA was endowed with 750 € and is traditionally awarded by LUM for outstanding scientific results... more »

  • Picture of the Month: Carbon with core-shell configuraton

    01. November 2016 – Structured materials featuring high surface area, tuned porosity, and high electrical conductivity are greatly demanded for the development of supercapacitors with both high energy and high power densities. At EAM novel core-shell carbon structures comprising a mesoporous-graphitic shell covering a... more »

  • Science Week im E-Werk Erlangen – Vortrag von Professor Julien Bachmann

    24. October 2016 – Science Week in Erlangen – das Wissenschaftsfestival: Eine Woche lang findet im Kulturzentrum E-Werk Erlangen ein spannendes und abwechslungsreiches Programm rund um die Wissenschaft statt. Die FAU ist Partner der Science Week. In der Vortragsreihe „FAU@Science Week“ reden hochrangige Professoren... more »

  • Picture of the Month: Platinum nanowires grown in an anodic alumina template

    01. October 2016 – Electrochemical reactions lie at the heart of energy conversion in fuel cells, electrolyzers, redox flow batteries, and photosynthesis. Their throughput, which determines the overall device performance, depends on the nanoscale electrode geometry in a complex manner. A porous electrode... more »

  • Atom Probe Tomography in theory and practice

    20. September 2016 – To kick-start the usage of the newly installed atom probe at the Institute I: General Materials Properties (WW1) in Erlangen, the EAM held the first Erlangen Atom Probe School on September 12 – 15, under the lead of Prof. Peter Felfer and Dr. Arun Prakash. It allowed 30 interested scientists to get... more »
