We are happy to welcome Andreas Zink as new PhD canditate in our group. Andi has already conducted his masters thesis in our group and we are glad to have him for a few more years. In his thesis he will combine inorganic nanoparticle building blocks with organic chemistry in supraprticles to investi...

And another article is about to be published: together with our Fraunhofer colleagues, we just got accepted: Stefan Lange, Bastian Fett, Angelika Hähnel, Alexander Müller, Bettina Herbig, Volker Naumann, Gerhard Sextl, Karl Mandel, Christian Hagendorf* Thin film formation of wet chemically depos...

In our latest work, accepted by Nano letters, we report on supraparticles with a unique ID that can report damage on a surface – our particles start to be really smart :-) Find out more, here.

Imagine a surface that can report on damage via a color change. Supraparticles can provide this functionality as we demonstrate in our latest article published in Small. Find out more, here.

In a huge collaboration work involving several groups at FAU, we were able to develop and to mechanistically understand a functional supraparticle to make hydrogen visible for bare eye detection. Read more on this, here.

So far, we succeeded in making particles that carry a unique optical or a unique magnetic ID. In our latest work, we demonstrate that also a combination of an optical ID and a magnetic ID within a single particle can be achieved! Find out more, here.

Last year, we demonstrated that a single supraparticle can carry a unique optical ID. This year, we demonstrate that it is even possible in an all optical system to overlay a second ID and hide a first one and reveal both! Just accepted in Advanced Optical Materials. Read more, here.

Citric acid modification of iron oxide nanoparticles is often conducted but rarely closely looked at. We shed light on this in our latest article just accepted in Particle, entitled “The Significant Influence of the pH Value on Citrate Coordination upon Modification of Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide N...
