  • Science Sets Sail: EAM crew sets sail from Tallinn to Rostock

    02. August 2017 – As the last of three legs of ‘Science Sets Sail’ the EAM Crew is going on board of ‘Thor Heyderdal’ in Tallinn, Estonia. Together with a crew of the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy and a crew of the Faculty of medicine/Collaborative Research Center 1181 the EAM crew is taking part in a 9-day... more »

  • Picture of the month: Self-assembled honeycomb network of carboxyl-substituted triphenylamine derivates on Au (111)

    01. August 2017 – Molecular self-assembly is a key concept in nanoscience allowing for the construction of complex molecular architectures in a bottom-up approach. We are carrying out in-depth studies on the subtle balance between intermolecular and molecule-surface interactions, and on how it affects the structure... more »

    17. July 2017 – The 26th International Conference on Discrete Simulation of Fluid Dynamics (DSFD) was organized and hosted by the Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg for Renewable Energy (Forschungszentrum Jülich) and the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg ( It took place in... more »

  • Groundbreaking ceremony for the new Helmholtz Institute for Renewable Energy

    10. July 2017 – Printable photovoltaics and innovative technologies for hydrogen storage: They are part of the vision of a climate-neutral and sustainable energy supply at acceptable costs. The necessary fundamentals, materials, and technologies will be researched and developed at the new Helmholtz Institute... more »

  • AVS honors Prof. Dr. Steinrück with Welch Award

    05. July 2017 – EAM Member Prof. Hans-Peter Steinrück has been awarded the Medard W. Welch Award. With the award the AVS - Science and Technology of Materials, Interfaces, and Processing (formerly American Vacuum Society) honors Steinrück's "pioneering work on the properties and reactivity of the surfaces of... more »

  • Picture of the month: ›Carpathian morning‹: ZnCdS:Mn@ZnS core-shell down-shifting nanocrytsals on top of a a Si solar cell

    03. July 2017 – The low efficiencies of inorganic solar cells in the ultraviolet (UV) and blue spectral region are key factors which restrict their power conversion efficiency (PCE). A simple and reliable technological step to overcome these limitations is the coating of the solar cells by UV-light conversion... more »

  • Prof. Marion Merklein receives the women's award of the magazine "EDITION F"

    23. June 2017 – For the fourth time, the magazine "EDITION F" has awarded the 25 Women Award and selected 25 women whose inventions improve our daily life. Among the winners is EAM member Prof. Marion Merklein. No matter what means of transportation we take, there is always a light metal at the... more »

  • Zellen, die fest zusammenhalten

    21. June 2017 – Studien werfen ein neues Licht auf Zell-Zell-Kontakte Bei der Entstehung und Stabilität von Zell-Zell-Kontakten spielen physikalische Effekte eine nicht zu unterschätzende Rolle. Das hat das Team um EAM Member Prof. Dr. Ana-Suncana Smith von der PULS Group der Professur für Theoretische Physik... more »

  • Wie Kleinstlebewesen einen ganzen Schwarm verändern

    20. June 2017 – FAU-Forschern gelingt es, erstmals einen großen Schwarm von Mikroschwimmern zu simulieren Mikroschwimmer sind kleinste Einheiten, die sich innerhalb von Flüssigkeiten ausbreiten – Bakterien oder Spermien sind typische Beispiele dafür. Physiker und Informatiker der FAU haben erstmals einen großen... more »

  • Seven-legged ‘beetles’ simulate dust clouds

    14. June 2017 – FAU physicists confirm theory of particle movement in granular gases Physicists at FAU have managed to make a major contribution that will aid research into avalanches, sand storms and cosmic dust clouds. By means of an innovative experiment in which autorotating particles, so-called vibrots,... more »
