Electron-positron pair creation in ultrastrong laser pulses
Univ. Prof. Dr. Dr. Carsten Müller, Universität Düsseldorf

Due to an enormous technological progress in recent years, laser pulses with ultrahigh intensities can nowadays be produced and a further increase is envisaged within the next generation of large-scale laser facilities. In the talk, we shall describe - from a theorist's persp ... more

Three-Dimensional Nano-printing using Focused Electron Beam Induced Deposition: Design, Simulation and Experiments
Dr. Jason Fowlkes, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee, USA

Nanotechnology urgently requires methods for direct 3D fabrication to access materials properties specific to 3D architectures. Direct–write, additive manufacturing using layer-by-layer deposition, or 3D printing, has emerged in recent years as a method to deposit truly 3D obj ... more

Biological and Biologically-inspired Materials for Electronics Fabrication
Mihai Irimia-Vladu, Ph.D., Institute for Surface Technologies and Photonics, Joanneum Research Forschungsgesellschaft, mbH

With global e-waste exceeding ~ 46 million tons/year for the year 2016 and expected to rise by at least 4 % for each of the following years, humanity already has a difficult problem to address-according to the GLOBAL E-WASTE MONITOR of the United Nations Institute for the Advance ... more

Nanomaterials for catalysis, gas separation and storage: Computational approaches on a mesoscopic scale
DDr. Andreas W. Hauser

The buzzword "nanotechnology" is so vague that it is used in a broad context ranging from shoe spray to smartphone electronics, from food production to numerous industrial applications. The term "nanoparticles", if taken literally, is already more concrete. Yet, it turns out that ... more

Surface Electronic Structure of SmB6 - The first topological Kondo insulator?
Dr. Emile Rienks, TU Dresden und IFW Dresden

The prediction that Kondo insulators could be topologically non-trivial [1] renewed interest in SmB6, a material that already earned a reputation as the first mixed valence system and the first Kondo insulator. Dzero et al.’s proposal [1] connects two of the most topical fields ... more

Bending, pulling, and cutting wrinkled two-dimensional materials
Prof. Dr. Kirill Bolotin, Department of Physics, FU Berlin

Two-dimensional materials (2DM) such as graphene, monolayer boron nitride, or monolayer molybdenum disulfide are crystalline layers only a few atoms thick. In this talk, we will examine the mechanical properties of these materials using newly developed techniques to pull, bend, t ... more

Cryo-Electron Microscopy and Tomography: The past, the present and the future
Prof. Dr. Jürgen Plitzko, Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry, Martinsried, Germany

The structural elucidation of isolated macromolecules with cryo-EM (i. e. ex situ) has been awarded with the nobel prize in chemistry in 2017 and can be seen nowadays as an established method. Although cryo-EM is not yet one of the high-throughput methods, the requirements in ter ... more
