research highlight

- confinement with a substrate surface forced the molecule terthiophene to form a crystal structure with 42 molecules within the unit cell together with systematically distorted molecules. (see Figure left).
- thermodynamically defined thin films in the smectic state

software development :
GIDVis - A modular MATLAB program to analyze grazing incidence diffraction images

Stereopole - a software for the analysis of x-ray diffraction pole figures with IDL was developed,
and can be >> downloaded << free of charge. Please install first the IDL Virtual Machine.
