Current members of the Bachmann group

We are located in the building of the Interdisciplinary Center for Nanostructured Films (IZNF) at Cauerstr. 3, where we occupy offices 2.135 to 2.138 and 2.164 to 2.167. Our laboratories are 2.113 (thin films), 1.100-1.101 (electrochemistry), 1.121 (‘moonshine lab’), 0.117 (instrumental lab), and (operated together with the Halik group) 2.103, 2.106, 2.107, 2.110. Additionally, we have our lab U1.023 in the EAM building, Egerlandstr. 3a for larger electrochemical setups (anodization, electrolysis, CO2 electroreduction).
