Electronic Materials

Our research, undertaken in close cooperation with our partner institute at RWTH Aachen University, focuses on the nanoelectronics of the future. To this end, we investigate electronic phenomena in oxides and electronically-active organic molecules.

Schichtweiser Aufbau eines Katalysatormaterials

Increasing the Activity of Catalysts

A layer as thin as a single atom makes a huge difference: On the surface of an electrode, it doubles the amount of water split in an electrolysis system without increasing the energy requirements. Thus, the ultrathin layer also doubles the amount of hydrogen produced without increasing costs. Researchers from Jülich, Aachen, Stanford, and Berkeley report on this in the latest edition of the journal Nature Materials.

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) can be combined with electron spin resonance. The major advantage of spin resonance is the fact that the energy resolution is independent of the temperature and thus can be much higher than a Fermi-function limited spectroscopy technique such as STM tunneling.
