EAM Science meets Fiction is a scientifically oriented exhibition that includes literature contributions. Our lab contributed one computer rendering of a clathrate crystal made from triangular bipyramids taken from a recent publication. The exhibition takes place from Sept 16 to…
Zhiyu joined the group as a PhD student. He will be working on hydrogels and simulate their mechanical properties. Welcome!
At the Tag des CBI 2017 Michael presented his inaugural lecture.
Marco joined the group as a PhD student. He will be working on developing and applying computational methods for the study of anisotropic particles. Welcome!
A research collaboration involving Prof. Michael Engel reported the self-assembly of gold nanoparticles of a particular shape with DNA ligands into clathrate colloidal crystals. The work required a combined effort of state-of-the-art synthesis techniques and DEM computer simulations. Clathrate Colloidal…
Alberto joined the group as a postdoctoral researcher. He will be working on simulations and analysis of the structure and microstructure of nanomaterials. Welcome!
Congratulations to Eric for the first prize in the annual MAP poster contest with a poster on simulating disordered photonic materials!
Chrameh joined the group as a PhD student. He will be working on colloidal crystallization in collaboration with the group of Prof. Nicolas Vogel. Welcome!
The Ferienakademie is a summer school with a long tradition organized by three universities in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. It is an excellent opportunity to spend two weeks in late summer/early fall in the Tyrol mountains (northern Italy) to learn and…
Junwei Wang, a PhD student working in the Vogel lab on a joint project, received a best poster award at the annual symposium of the EAM cluster at Kloster Banz. Congratulations!
