Welcome to our GRK 1896 Homepage!

The doctoral program GRK 1896 “In situ Microscopy with Electrons, X-rays and Scanning Probes” combines, for the first time, three pillars of nanocharacterization into a structured research training group. The main objective of this program is to provide the next generation of scientists and engineers with comprehensive, method-spanning and interdisciplinary training in the application of cutting-edge nanocharacterization tools to materials and device development. Our PhD candidates are well-positioned in a network of international collaborations and highly trained in multiple, complementary techniques, providing them with an essential foundation for a successful career in the field of advanced materials and devices development.

Congratulations to Andreas Schiener for his very good PhD examination. Andreas studied the nucleation and growth of CdS-Nanoparticles in aqueous systems with microsecond resolution. For this purpose he developed new experimental methods like a free jet and a hanging drop setup for in-situ SAXS exper...
