The 2023 Nobel Prize for chemistry has been awarded to Moungi Bawendi, Louis Brus and Aleksey Ekimov for their discovery of quantum dots, nanoparticles that are so small that their physical size determines the quantum mechanical states of the material’s charge carriers. Quantum dots constitute a new...

CRC 1411 PI and managing director Johannes Walter will receive the Friedrich-Löffler-Prize 2023 of the VDI – The Association of German Engineers – for his outstanding developments of novel tools for multidimensional characterization of nanoparticles. His contributions to both fundamental science and...

CRC 1411 PI and Vice-Spokesperson Martin Hartmann will receive the Klaus-Unger-Award 2024 of the Zeolite division of DECHEMA for his work on porous solids, which has resulted in "ground-breaking progress in the synthesis and application of these materials".  His work has inspired and shaped the zeol...

Surface properties of nanoparticles and the corresponding (de-) agglomeration phenomena are crucial for nanoparticle functionalities and processability. However, especially in optically dense media the investigation of agglomeration is challenging. Three groups of the CRC1411 have joined forces for ...

Two CRC1411-related lectures taught by Prof. Nicolas Vogel were included in the “Bestenlisten”, with “Polymer Materials” ranking 2nd, and "Grenzflächen in der Biotechnologie” ranking 3rd in the whole TechFac. These awards show how the results of the CRC1411 and LFG research contribute to the success...
