Revolution in 3D laser nanoprinting

A recent article in Nature Photonics ( demonstrates that it is possible to replace two-photon absorption in 3D nanoprinting by two-step absorption. The use of small and cheap laser diodes instead of expensive femtosecond lasers has the potential of revolutionizing 3D printing

The Blasco group enhances chemistry at the CAM

The CAM welcomes Prof. Dr. Eva Blasco and her group at the institute as an enforcement of the CAM chemistry division.

Eva Blasco worked as a group leader at the Institute of Nanotechnology at KIT in Karlsruhe and has just started as junior professor in organic chemistry at the University Heidelberg. Her group focuses on the development of new functional polymer-based materials for 3D printing using light.

Mapping the Energetic Landscape of Solar Cells

A new spectroscopic method now makes it possible to measure and visualise the energetic landscape inside solar cells based on organic materials. It was developed by a research team led by Prof. Dr Yana Vaynzof, a physicist at Heidelberg University. This novel visualisation technique enables scientists to study the physical principles of organic photovoltaics with extreme precision and to better understand processes such as energetic losses.

Poster prize for Wolfgang Köntges

Quantitative morphology characterization in real space of organic photovoltaic materials is very challenging. For his success in obtaining novel insights into non-fullerene acceptor blends Wolfgang Köntges (third from the right) of the Pfannmöller group was awarded a poster prize at the Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics Conference 2019 in Rome.
