Collaborative Research Center 767
In January 2008 the new Collaborative Research Center 767 Controlled Nanosystems: Interaction and Interfacing to the Macroscale funded by the DFG has been established at the University of Konstanz. The initiative addresses the challenge of achieving a detailed understanding of the interaction of nanostructures, both among themselves and with their macroscopic environment. The common goal is always to precisely control and manipulate their properties in order to pave the way for new functionalities.
To this end, 14 projects in the fields of mechanical, optical, and electronic control of nanostructures are pursued by groups of the Physics and Chemistry departments of the University of Konstanz and of the MPI Solid State Research in Stuttgart. To promote young scientists in the SFB an integrated research training group has been established.
The spokesperson of the SFB 767 is Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Belzig from the Department of Physics of the University of Konstanz.
Trends in Nanoscience 2013
The 4th International Symposium "Trends in Nanoscience 2013" will bring together scientists from chemistry, physics, and biology addressing experimental as well as theoretical issues of the topics given below. The meeting aims at promoting our understanding of the organization, interactions and control schemes of complex nanosystems and, by trying to relate structure and function, will advance knowledge leading ultimately to new technologies.
- Magnetic Nanostructures
- Molecular Electronics
- Nanomechanics & Nanotribology
- Quantum Dots & Quantum Transport
