Tailoring atomic layer growth
In this recent contribution, we offer a new approach to tailor the growth of thin atomic layers on metallic substrates. Read about it in Nature Communications
2D-INK ... the movie
2D-INK (http://www.2d-ink.eu) is a European project targeted at developing inks of novel 2D semiconducting materials for low-cost large-area fabrication processes on insulating substrates through a new methodology, which will exceed the properties of state-of-the-art graphene- and graphene oxide based inks. Watch the movie.
Linearly Nanopatterned Covalent Chemical Functionalization of Graphene
A great step forwards in controlling chemical functionalization of graphite and graphene. Self-assembled alkane monolayers as templates do the job. Read about it in ACS Nano
Dynamics of Supercoiled DNA
Together with colleagues from LMU and Kanazawa University, we investigated the free energy landscape and dynamics of supercoiled DNA by AFM (published in ACS Nano).
Nanoshaving and chirality: new paper in JACS
Curious about how shaving works at the nanoscale and affects chirality? Find out more in our latest paper.
Our latest publication in Nature Chemistry tackles a puzzling issue in supramolecular systems, that is, the origin of single-handedness in near-racemic mixtures of two non-interconvertible enantiomers upon cooperative supramolecular assembly.
Best oral contribution
Congratulation to Peter Walke, for his "best oral contribution" at the SPMonSPM 2018 conference in Leuven
Several PhD positions available.
Self-Assembled Polystyrene Beads for Templated Covalent Functionalization
A network of self-assembled polystyrene beads was employed as a lithographic mask during covalent functionalization reactions on graphitic surfaces to create nanocorrals for confined molecular self-assembly studies.
