The EU project “Universal scanning electron microscope” (UnivSEM) has the objective to develop a multifunctional analytical apparatus, which combines a wide variety of contemporary characterization tools including microscopy (SEM, SPM and OM), spectroscopy (EDX, ToF-SIMS,Raman and CL), electron diffraction (EBSD) and tomography. Such an auspicious configuration of tools expedites the 3D manipulation and analysis of nanostructures and will be a breakthrough in nanotechnology both in academic and industrial scale.

LCAOS is an EU-funded project aiming to tackle lung cancer (LC) as the world’s most lethal cancer through development of an efficient non-invasive nano-device, namely “NA-NOSE”, assisting early stage diagnosis as well as therapeutical monitoring. The NA-NOSE supposes to comprise an array of hybrid Si NWs-FET that senses the LC biomarkers in the exhaled breath selectively distinguishing between healthy and LC tissues. LCAOS can lead to a great advancement in LC therapy through such a high-precision diagnosis tool and save many lives by timely diagnosis.

FOR 1616 is a research group founded and funded by the German Research Society (DFG) with the goal to advance the knowledge of gain/lasing light-matter interaction i.e. charge separation and polaritons. Studies are conducted in two general project areas: Photonic and Electronic. Members are from a wide variety of individual research groups across Germany contributing each to a technological and scientific aspect of the project’s objectives.
