02 Sep. - 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
Sep. 05 - 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
Jun. 26 - On the occasion of a joint project in the network, the network day NanoSilver 2018 takes place at the university medical centre in Regensburg (UKR). At the UKR, various surfaces within the emergency room are equipped with antimicrobial silver. Learn more about this and other projects at Network Day NanoSilber on June 26, 2018.Netzwerktag NanoSilber 2018

„State-of-the-art“ nanocharacterization as a tool for innovation: How can deep understanding in nano-scale materials science lead to new or improved industrial applications of materials and create innovation? Experts from industry and academia discuss issues related to this question in our newly initiated transfer forum on Nanocharacterization.Further information
The new graduate school for modeling, design, implementation and automation of printed and hybrid electronics has started in fall 2016. MERAGEM is coordinated by Prof. Jasmin Aghassi (Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Offenburg, HSO/Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, KIT) and Prof. Mehdi Tahoori (KIT) and receives funding from the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts Baden-Württemberg. First students have already been recruited.Further information
NanoMat and the Institute for Technology Assessment and System Analysis (ITAS) have initiated an interdisciplinary seminar series on "Nanotechnologies and their impact on society, environment, and economy". The series was kicked of on Nov. 21, 2016 with a presentation by Prof. Bernadette Bensuaude.Vincent (Sorbonne, Paris) on "The Moral Ecomony of Bionanotechnology".Information & Schedule
