The Future of Nano Materials Research from Dresden: Cfaed Chair receives one of three DFG programmes for Nano Materials Collaborative Research Center at TU Dresden
Published on in NEWS
The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding three Collaborative Research Centres (CRC) at TU Dresden with a total of around 29 Million Euros over the next four years. Among one of these three is the CRC 1415 “Chemistry of Synthetic Two-Dimensional Materials” by Prof. Dr. Xinliang Feng, who is group leader of the Chair for Molecular Functional Materials at the cfaed – Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden.
Prof. Feng, Chair for Molecular Functional Materials at the cfaed, and his team have successfully attained one of three huge funding programmes for Collaborative Research Centres at the Technische Universität Dresden, as the DFG announced. Feng and his team therefore will receive about 7.7 million Euro in funding. In the CRC, the TU Dresden and the Chair for Molecular Functional Materials at cfaed will collaborate with the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden and the Ulm University as research partners.
The Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1415 “Chemistry of Synthetic Two-Dimensional Materials” will aim at the controlled bottom-up synthesis and the development of novel classes of synthetic 2DMs with high structural definition. Moreover, the development of in-situ and ex-situ spectroscopic, microscopic and diffraction characterization methods plays a key role. The third focal point of the research initiative is to theoretically tackle the chemical and physical phenomena of 2DMs using advanced theoretical methods and models, and to predict the 2DM’s formation and their physical and chemical properties.
