[Gemeinsame Pressemitteilung von Landeshauptstadt Dresden und Technischer Universität Dresden, 3. August 2017]
Die Landeshauptstadt setzt ihre Standortkampagne zum Wirtschafts- und Wissenschaftsstandort ein, um die Exzellenzbewerbung der Technischen Universität Dresden (TUD) zu unterstützen – und holt die Dresdnerinnen und Dresdner mit ins Boot. Ziel ist es, die Dresdner Stadtgesellschaft über die TUD-Exzellenzbewerbung zu informieren und für „ihre“ Exzellenzuniversität zu mobilisieren. Dafür hat die Landeshauptstadt die Website dresden.de/exzellenz gestartet. Während des gesamten Bewerbungsprozesses wird die Landeshauptstadt Dresden gemeinsam mit den Bürgerinnen und Bürgern dabei helfen, dass die TU Dresden ihren Exzellenzstatus behält. Deshalb stehen in der PR-Kampagne seit diesem Jahr die zukunftsweisenden Forschungsthemen der Exzellenzuniversität TUD und deren aktuelle Bewerbung in der neuen Exzellenzstrategie des Bundes und der Länder im Fokus.http://datas.weichertmehner.com/ddexzellenz.zip

From April to June 2017 I had the chance to work for 3 months with the Salleo Research Group at Stanford University. The research visit was financed in part by the cfaed INSPIRE grant and in part by the Graduate Academy through a travel grant for short-term research stays abroad. During my time in the group I was trying to shed light on the charge carrier transport in thin films of semiconducting polymers synthesized as part of the Organic/Polymer Path in collaboration with the Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research.
The main reason for my visit of the group was the application of charge-modulation spectroscopy to our polymers. This technique has only been established in a few research groups around the world and gives information about the degree of freedom charge carriers have close to the semiconductor/dielectric interface based on the optical absorption of the carriers. The results will help us optimizing the device performance of field-effect transistors.
Furthermore, right next to Stanford University is the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource, a Department of Energy user facility for very bright electromagnetic radiation. During my 3 months I was lucky enough to get multiple days and nights at the facility to investigate the film structure of our materials by x-ray scattering techniques. This allows us to correlate the structural and electronic properties of our semiconducting polymers.

The Inspire Grant gave me the opportunity to spend a month in the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Livermore, CA, USA), an institution with more than half century of history. My host group was Prof. Alex Noy’s Bioelectronics and Nanofluidics Group. They have a large experience interfacing biological elements and electronic circuits, including the analysis of transport through artificial pores created by inserting carbon nanotubes in lipid membranes, and published in the highly prestigious journals Science and Nature. The group members were very open and sociable, which helped to easily adapt from the very first day.

Professor Zhenan Bao is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University. She is also a co-founder and on the Board of Directors for C3 Nano, a silicon-valley venture funded start-up commercializing flexible transparent electrodes. Prior to joining Stanford in 2004, she was a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff in Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies from 1995-2004. She has over 400 refereed publications and over 60 US patents with a Google Scholar H-Index >110. She pioneered a number of design concepts for organic electronic materials. Her work has enabled flexible electronic circuits and displays. In her recent work, she has developed skin-inspired organic electronic materials, which resulted in unprecedented performance or functions in medical devices, energy storage and environmental applications.

Carbon Materials such as nanoparticles, fibres, adamantane- and graphene-like structures are widely used in science and engineering. Applications range from energy and gas storage to electronics and optical applications. The internationally renowned experts who contributed to this book discuss chemical aspects of carbon structures, their synthesis, functionalization and design strategies for defined applications.
Chemistry of Carbon Nanostructures aims to present the current state-of-the-art synthesis and application of carbon materials like nano diamonds, ribbons and graphene-like structures in science and engineering. Edited by Professor Klaus Müllen, who received the Adolf von Bayer Medal for his contribution to Carbon Chemistry, and Xinliang Feng, this book combines outstanding contributions by a renowned international team of experts.
