  • Nanowires and nanotubes: structural and electronic properties
  • Graphene: a novel quasi two-dimensional system
  • Organic light emitting diodes
  • Photonic devices
  • Perovskites/Oxides


  • Lithographic processes and their application to materials
  • SPM imaging and manipulation
  • Structural-chemical characterisation: x-ray, SEM, TEM, EDX, EELS
  • Property characterisation: magnetic, electrical and thermal characterisation
  • Thin film technology and their uses
  • Materials simulation: classical
  • Materials simulation: quantum


  • Thermoelectricity: Seebeck, Peltier, and Thomson effect Photovoltaics
  • Electrode effects in ferroelectric memories (ferroelectric memory)
  • Spintronics (giant magnetoresistance: physics and applications)
  • Molecular electronics
  • Conductance quantization at the Nanoscale
  • Properties of DNA
  • Biosensors: a perspective
  • Superconductivity and SQUIDs
  • Ferromagnetism: applications and physics

rules of the game

  • one or two max students per topic
  • for each topic a review paper will be provided, but further literature research might be necessary
  • participation: obligatory
  • presentations will be graded according to:
    1. understanding,
    2. ability to discuss the results,
    3. quality of the presentation,
    4. ability to ask questions (therefore everyone must participate)
  • concept papers and slides should be uploaded in
  • presentations: 45 min. + 45 min. general discussion
