Invited Talks & Travel

We work with scientists across the globe and have ongoing US and international collaborations towards better and faster solutions of fundamental problems in areas from condensed matter, nanoelectronics & quantum computing, to interdisciplinary topics linking basic physics with electronics, biology & medicine.

Recently we have contributed to the understanding and development of 2D materials as nanoporous membranes (membranes with holes to allow for water, ion and molecule passage) for applications in water treatment, desalination as well as biomarker analysis and DNA sequencing.

Undergraduate and graduate students, and postdocs have the opportunity to travel and participate to the leading conferences in the field. In the past, students (including undergraduates) and postdocs from our lab have travelled and given presentations of our research results and visited many universities and countries including: Netherlands, Japan, Israel, Canada, Taiwan, France, Germany, Switzerland and many others (see below).

    P02 – Atomically Precise Manipulation of Materials

    Atomically precise manipulation was first achieved with scanning probe microscopies, which continue to produce important advances using surface atoms and vacancies. However, recent developments in scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) instrumentation have made it possible to focus electron beams with sub-atomic precision, opening up new possibilities for manipulating strongly bound materials, including in the bulk. At the same time, other charged particle beams, including helium ion microscopy, have been added to the scientific arsenal, and advances in atomistic modeling and theory have elucidated new details of the beam-matter interaction, helping guide experiments. These breakthroughs have led to a series of studies on the controlled structuring, etching, deposition, phase change, and ultimately manipulation of individual atoms. This symposium will gather leading experts from this new frontier of materials science, including advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence, with a focus on atomic-level control.

Where: Physikzentrum Bad Honnef

Scientific organizers: Dr. Arkady V. Krasheninnikov, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Dresden • Prof. Dr. Thomas Michely, U Köln • Prof. Dr. Marika Schleberger, U Duisburg-Essen, Duisburg • Dr. Stefan Facsko, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Dresden

Defects in crystalline solids are ubiquitous. It is the second law of thermodynamics that gives rise to the appearance of a certain amount of disorder in materials at finite temperatures. Defects have a strong influence on the electronic, optical, thermal, and mechanical properties of the solids, normally deteriorating their characteristics, but they can also be useful, e.g., for doping of semiconductors or quantum computing. Defects are also present in two-dimensional (2D) materials, which have recently been on the forefront of research in materials science, physics and chemistry. The reduced dimensionality of 2D materials, strongly affects the behavior of native and irradiation-induced defects in these systems, so that many concepts of the physics of defects in bulk systems are not applicable for 2D materials or requirem substantial modifications. The goal of the Seminar is to bring together active researchers in the field to discuss “state of the art” in theory and experiment dealing with the physics of defects in 2D materials. The effects of various imperfections on the properties of 2D systems will be addressed. The attendees will learn about recent developments in the theorectical methods and characterization techniques used to study deffects in 2D materials. Particular attention will be paid to defects in technologically important graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides. The response of 2D materials to ion and electron irradiation will also be addressed.

  • October 31 – November 3, 2022. Invited talk. Delft, Netherlands, Single-Molecule Protein Sequencing (SMPS3) conference

Modern DNA sequencing technologies have revolutionized genomics and biomedical research, but extending these techniques to routine analysis of the human proteome, particularly at the single-protein level, remains a global challenge. A highly sensitive sequencing technology, ideally addressing proteins at the single-molecule level, will create the opportunity for single-cell proteomics and real-time screening for on-site medical diagnostics, and will pave the road towards the development of a new, fast, and reliable diagnostic tool for healthcare.

Following the first conference series on “Single-molecule Protein Sequencing” held in Delft, the Netherlands (2017) and the second one held in Jerusalem, Israel (2019), we are pleased to announce our third international conference on this topic to be held back in Delft, the Netherlands. This conference will bring together leading researchers who are pioneering the development of single-molecule protein sequencing techniques.
