DFG Projects

Leipzig School of Natural Sciences - Building with Molecules and Nano objects (BuildMoNa) - GSC 185

The graduate school focuses on interdisciplinary graduate education through top-level, synergistic research. The materials research concept is based on a "bottom-up" approach. [...] Read more

Polymers under Multiple Constraints: Restricted and Controlled Molecular Order and Mobility - SFB/TRR 102

The central aim of the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre is to study and understand the effect of internal and external constraints on structure formation and dynamics of polymer systems. [...] Read more

Understanding of Oxide/Water Systems at the Molecular Scale: Structural Evolution, Interfaces and Dissolution - SFB 1109

Materials based on metal oxides are of crucial importance for a multitude of present and emerging technical and consumer applications. In such applications, ranging from medical implants to surface coatings and construction materials, metal oxides are very often in contact with water during use and typically they are also produced from aqueous solution. [...] Read more

Functionality of Oxide Interfaces - SFB 762

The central aim of the Collaborative Research Centre is the fabrication and characterisation of oxide heterostructures with components exhibiting ferroelectric, magnetic, semiconducting and insulating properties, thus featuring additional degrees of freedom for the design of functional elements. [...] Read more

Switchable Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF-Switches) - FOR 2433

Porous materials play a key role in gas and liquid phase separations, energy storage, as catalysts and for optical and chemical sensing. [...]  Read more

Diversity of Asymmetric Thiamine Catalysis - FOR 1296

Thiamine diphosphate (ThDP)-dependent enzymes catalyse a broad range of reactions, many still to be discovered, especially if non-physiological. [...] Read more

Integrierte chemische Mikrolaboratorien (InCheM) - FOR 2177

Chemistry in miniaturized systems in which chemical processes take place in microchannels or cavities is a very active field of research. In recent years, impressive scientific progress was made in micro reaction technology as well as in the miniaturization of analytical methods and technologies. However, although intense research efforts are made in these single disciplines all around the world, their efficient combination is still largely in its infancy.  Read more

Towards Molecular Spintronics - FOR 1154

The Research Unit aims at the fundamental understanding and the experimental demonstration of spin electronic devices based on magnetic molecules. We will try to switch the spin transfer through magnetic molecules by changing the alignment of the molecular spins. [...] Read more

Diamond Materials for Quantum Application - FOR 1493

Quantum physics has come a long way since its theoretical beginnings in the early twentieth century. Techniques to manipulate light and matter have become increasingly sophisticated, facilitating fundamental studies of quantum effects and inspiring new technologies. [...] Read more

Dynamics and Interactions of Semiconductor Nanowires for Optoelectronics - FOR 1616

Semiconductor nanowires are the ideal tools for the investigation of the fundamental limits of one-dimensional optoelectronic and photonic devices. In many aspects, they are superior to their bulk or thin-film counterparts. Until now, in almost all cases the bare nanowire itself has been in the focus of research. [...] Read more

Diffusion in Porous Materials - GRK 1056

Diffusion, i.e. the irregular movement of particles induced by their thermal energy, is one of the fundamental phenomena in nature. [...] Read more

Microswimmers - From Single Particle Motion to Collective Behaviour - SPP 1726

Self-propulsion and motility of cells are major achievements of evolution. They facilitate the search for nutrition, orientation towards light, and the formation of collectives and swarms and in this way render possible live as we know it. Read more

EU Projects

Imaging the Force of Cancer (FORCE) - H2020 (RIA)

Our objective is the non-invasive measurement of both IFP within tumours as well as the forces they exert on their surrounding environment. This will be used to predict a tumour’s metastatic potential and importantly, changes in these forces will be used to predict the therapeutic efficacy of drug therapy. [...] Read more

Clinical Intervention Modelling, Planning and Proof for Ablation Cancer Treatment - FP7

The ClinicIMPPACT proposal builds upon the successful completion of the IMPPACT project (Grant No. 223877, completed in February 2012) that resulted in the creation of a physiological radio-frequency ablation (RFA) model for liver cancer treatment. [...] Read more

A Generic Open-end Simulation Environment for Minimally Invasive Cancer Treatment - FP7

The Go-Smart project will build a generic open-source software simulation environment for planning of image guided percutaneous Minimally Invasive Cancer Treatment (MICT). [...] Read more 

Stem cells for relevant efficient extended and normalized toxicology (ScreenTox) - FP7

In the development of products for use by humans it is vital to identify compounds with toxic properties at an early stage of their development, to avoid spending time and resoucre on unsuitable and potentially unsafe candidate products. Human luripotent stem cell lines offer a unique opportunity to develop a wide variety of human cell-based test systems because they may be expanded indefinitely and triggered to differentiate into any cell type. [...] Read more

BRASINOEU - Translocation and Safe Design of Surface Engineered Metal oxide Nanoparticles - FP7

BRASINOEU aims to study the translocation and nanosafety issues of engineered metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs).The new scientific and technology developments of nanotechnology require a deeper knowledge of the effects of nanotechnology based products on human health. Read more
