  • 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 »

  • FAU material researcher receives 2 million euro ERC Consolidator Grant

    01. March 2017 – Prof. Dr. Erik Bitzek, Chair of General Materials Properties of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), has received a coveted ERC consolidator scholarship worth two million euros from the European Research Council (ERC) – to explore more intensively why things break apart. With... more »
