  • The funCOS research group will be continuing its work to 2020

    27. March 2017 – Individual pieces of a jigsaw puzzle joined together as if moved by magic – that is what FAU materials researchers dream of when they apply molecules to surfaces to produce materials for new technologies such as organic solar cells. To date, researchers knew very little about how large molecules... more »

  • Picture of the month: Scrutinizing individual porphyrin molecules at room-temperature with scanning tunneling microscopy

    01. March 2017 – One of the main goals within the EAM is the controlled fabrication of functional structures and materials from molecules. To do so we follow a bottom-up approach, in which we rely on the adsorption behavior of functional molecules, namely porphyrins, on various substrates. In the present study,... more »
