The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) has announced that our draft proposal was successful! We are invited to submit a full proposal for funding by the Excellence Strategy of the German Federal and State Governments due 21 Feb 2018. This confirms that our research approach during the last five years is on the right track. Now, after a short moment of celebrations, we will start writing again. Our major goal remains to strengthen the fundamental microelectronics research and therefore support Dresden as the most important microelectronics hub in Europe.

Starting 1st of October 2017, a new group will join cfaed: The Single Molecule Machines group led by Dr. Francesca Moresco will use on-surface synthesis as well as atomic and molecular manipulation to exploit the quantum mechanical properties of molecular and atomic structures for applications in electronics at the nanoscale.
In close collaboration with TU Dresden’s Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology (Prof. Gianaurelio Cuniberti) at the Institute of Materials Science, the group will investigate the electronic and mechanical properties of single molecules on ultra clean surfaces by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy at low temperature.

The DRESDEN-concept (DDc) science exhibition continues its international tour. Today, the exhibition was opened at Plac Solny (Salt Market), one of the most central squares in Wrocław. It will inform the city residents and visitors about the Dresden science landscape for the next three weeks. The opening event on 22 September 2017 was attended by Prof. Hans Müller-Steinhagen, Chairman of the DDc Executive Board and members of TU Dresden’s Senior Management, the Saxon State Secretary Uwe Gaul, the Lord Mayor of the State Capital Dresden Dirk Hilbert, and numerous directors of the DDc partner institutions. The Mayor of Wrocław, as well as the rectors of the five Wrocław-based universities were also in attendance (the Wrocław University, the Technical, the Medical, the Economic and the Natural Sciences Universities).

Congratulations to cfaed PhD student Marcus Richter for being honored with one of three prestigious ACS Nano Poster Prize Awards at the ChinaNANO 2017 in Beijing, which was held between August 29-31. He received it for his poster on “Polycyclic Azomethine Ylides as Versatile Building Block for Unprecedented N-doped Nanographenes”. A total of over 800 posters were pitching at the conference. The prize was handed over by Prof. Paul S. Weiss (founding Editor-in-Chief of ACS Nano) during the closing session. Marcus Richter, who was supported by the cfaed Inspire Grant, visited the chairs of Prof. Carlos-Andres Palma, Prof. Shixuan Du and Prof. Hong-Jun Gao at the Institute of Physics at the Chinese Academy of Science in Beijing for two months.

[Press release from TU Dresden, 14 August 2017]
Acenes are molecules formed by the linear fusion of special carbon-based hexagons, widely known as ‘benzene rings’. In spite of its structural simplicity, these molecules have attracted huge attention due to their unique electronic properties; pentacene, for example, a member of this family with five linear rings, is considered as one of the most relevant organic semiconductor to build photoelectronic devices, while larger acenes present intriguing properties that have fascinated scientists for decades. However, long acenes are unstable molecules, which cannot be found in natural sources. The obvious alternative is to access these molecules by chemical synthesis, but this approach becomes more challenging as the length of the molecule increases. In fact, nonacene (nine rings linearly fused) was the largest acene detected to date in 2010.
