Paper on DNA-programmable self-assembly published in ‚Science‘

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

Two high-impact publications

We are very excited about two new nanoparticle publications in top-level journals, a review article on self-assembly in Chemical Reviews and an upcoming paper about quasicrystals in Nature Materials: “Chemical methods developed over the past two decades enable preparation of

Photonic band gap paper appears in PRL

“We study photonic band gap formation in two-dimensional high-refractive-index disordered materials where the dielectric structure is derived from packing disks in real and reciprocal space. Numerical calculations of the photonic density of states demonstrate the presence of a band gap
