The overall goal of the research project is to correlate the molecular structure of silicon-based preceramic polymers with the ceramic microstructure derived therefrom and to study the thermal stability of the synthesized materials in terms of decomposition, phase separation and crystallization. This procedure will allow to explain the interrelations between precursor, microstructure and properties.
As a Materials World Network project, this brings together researchers in Germany and… Continue

In our group tools from Supramolecular Chemistry are used to engineer cell fate. Cell adhesion, migration and differentiation are important for various applications such as tissue engineering. This project is a collabortion with the medical centre in Enschede and cell biologists to improve the design of stent materials. Continue
The project deals with functionalizing and synthesizing proteins and peptides with supramolecular ligands, which are used for anchoring them onto (stent) surfaces that…

PhD and Postdoc position
In our new SFB (collaborative research programme) on Functional Oxide
Surfaces and Interfaces we will study properties of and processes on
oxide surfaces with relevance to technological applications. The focus
of this position will be on zirconia (ZrO2) surfaces. The work will
start with growth of ultrathin zirconia films by oxidation of a
zirconium alloy or zirconium deposited on a more inert metal.
The zirconia films will be… Continue

The competitive field of Nanoindentation measurement is commonly decided upon depth and load specifications. Competing Nanoindentation instruments list resolution capabilities from the Pico to the Micro ranges. Unfortunately, these specifications are sometimes intentionally misleading. When Depth Resolution is specified in the Pico range, it suggests that depth is controlled and measured at a hundredth of an Angstrom. Keeping in mind that an atom is between 62… Continue

PARTICLE-SIZE-MEASURING IN THE NANOMETER-RANGE
NANO is an in many cases even in technical literature incorrectly used term. The Technical Committee 229 of ISO is deserving thanks for an exact definition with respect to particle size measurement in August 2008. (ISO/TS27687).
According to this definition only NANO-objects should be called NANO-particles if its three coordinate dimensions are all within the NANO-range of about 1 nm to 100 nm.
Regrettably even today many… Continue

Sony published an interesting interview with their display unit team about rollable OLED displays. Back in May (during SID 2010) Sony unveiled a new 4.1" rollable OLED display. In the interview, Dr. Kazumasa Nomoto reveals that Sony's end target is a rollable large-screen OLED TV: "The time will come when the very idea that an enormous black box (TV)was ever placed in rooms will seem strange.".
Sony also discusses the three new technologies that were developed just for this display:… Continue
