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
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

Apr. 18, 2018 - Our next Workshop on Nano-Enabled Printed Electronics will take place at KIT on Wednesday, April 18, 2018. Focus lies on moving printed electronics technology from the laboratory to the market. As in our previous workshop in Sept. 2016, we will welcome participants from industry and academia which will come from different European technology regions.
