  • 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 »

The network comprises 13 universities, four research institutes and five businesses in 13 European countries, and... more »

  • Job hunting meets networking

    01. December 2016 – “Do you need your CV to get a job?” This was one of the first questions GS AMP guest Rob Thompson addressed to the audience at Kloster Banz during the 8th EAM Symposium from 21 – 23 November 2016. As in previous years, the first day was dedicated to doctoral researchers and GS AMP. This year’s... 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 »

  • 8th EAM Symposium

    28. November 2016 – For the 8th time the annual EAM Symposium took place from 21–23 November 2016. More than 160 EAM scientists accepted the invitation to Kloster Banz to discuss recent research achievements from all areas of EAM. The first day of the symposium followed tradition by focusing on doctoral researchers... more »
