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.

The PhD defence of GRK1896 member Nadine Schrenker took place on 13. Mar. 2020. With her systematic work “In situ Microscopy Study on the Mechanical Integrity of Flexible Silver Nanowire Electrodes”, she has been awarded the title Dr.-Ing. Her PhD work at the heart of the GRK1896 program focused ...
