Sep. 02, 2018 - Surface modification through tribological loading is understood as a mechanically driven process. Yet, potentially complex chemical reactions can be critical since their products influence contact mechanics and affect friction and wear. Here we investigate the tribologically driven surface oxidation of pure copper in contact with a sapphire sphere.Link to the paper
Das BMBF, das KIT und NanoMat veranstalten am 9. April 2019 ein Technologiegespräch zum Thema „Materialinnovationen und Start-ups: Chancen und Herausforderungen für junge Unternehmen“, am Institut für Nanotechnologie (INT), KIT Campus Nord.Anmeldung und weitere Informationen
The NanoVision 2019 on February 20/21 will be hosted and co-organized by EMPA, one of NanoMats partners on the topic of pintable functional oxide materials. We will focus on material processing, functionalization, printed devices and systems ranging from electron-ics applications to energy storage in form of printable batteries. Also the novel and inter-esting class of high entropy oxide materials will be discussed.
We are looking forward to an exciting event and soon the program and registration will be accessible here.Further Information
Sep. 21, 2018 - NanoMat initiates a working group on Biomaterials. The focus is on strengthening individual potentials, synergies and cooperation between the partners, coming from academia and industry. The second meeting will take place on September 26, 2018 at INT, KIT.
Contact person is: Dr. Nathalie Matter-König
Sep. 05, 2018 - At the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), physicist Professor Thomas Schimmel and his team have developed a single-atom transistor, the smallest transistor worldwide. This quantum electronics component switches an electrical current by controlled repositioning of a single atom, now also in the solid state in a gel electrolyte.Further Information
