- Solid-State Spectroscopy
- Solid-state spectroscopy provides direct information on the electronic and dynamical structure of solids. Such structures determine the basic electronic, optical, but also mechanical properties of the materials. Therefore, solid-state spectroscopy rates among the most important methods to obtain the requested information. Spectroscopic techniques have a long tradition but are still further developing today.
- International Winterschool on Electronic Properties of Novel Materials - Molecular Nanostructures
- Every year we organize in co-operation with the Max Planck Institut in Stuttgart, the University of Stuttgart and the IFW in Dresden in the first or second week of March an International Winterschool on the above topic. Worldwide leading scientists working in the field are invited for lecturing and graduated students and young scientists participate with poster presentations and in discussions. Topics for presentation are nanotubes, molecular wires, molecular machines, quantum dots, and material science of various low dimensional systems.
