Nanochemistry and Nanoengineering

The Helmholtz-Group of Young Academics from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Research Centre and from the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel deals with the design and development of multifunctional nanomaterials.

The main aim of the young scientists is to combine the nanotechnology research of the University of Kiel with the research into the area of polymer science of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Research Centre.

The research of the group is focused on energy and sustainability. The research encompasses design, synthesis, functionalization, and self-assembly of nanoscale materials for applications in plasmonics, photonics, electronics, sensing, separation, and medicine. Using wet chemistry, electrospinning, physical deposition and their combinations, we aim to create nanomaterials and nanocomposites (e.g. metal, metal oxide, polymer, etc.) with diverse multifunctional properties for new technological applications.
