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 GRK program of 2019 started with an excursion to the Thermo Fisher factory in Brno (10th to 11th of January). Thanks to a well-organized factory tour from the Thermo Fisher side, the participants got deep insight into the TEM as well as SEM assembly process at an industrial scale. The GRK member...

The PhD defence of Mr. Thomas Przybilla took place on 10. Dec. 2018. With his systematic work of “Studying the structure and mechanical properties of nanoporous materials by advanced tomography and in situ mechanical testing”, he has been awarded the title Dr.-Ing. His thesis work has been focuse...

In the 1940s, scientists first explained how Materials can deform plastically by atomic-scale line defects called dislocations. These defects can be understood as tiny carpet folds that can move one part of a material relative to the other without spending a lot of energy. Many technical application...

The 4th CENEM Summer School for X-ray Scattering will be held at the Institute for Crystallography and Structural Physics (ICSP) from 16th to 19th of July 2018. The school will provide a perfect opportunity to get a detailed insight into theory and practice of several modern scattering methods as X-...

This year’s GRK school took place from the 26th of February to the 1st of March in Großarl (Austria). It featured various new aspects as compared to former schools: Besides being a non-PI school, it took place, for the first time, in winter. In addition, a new format of talks, namely methodological ...
