The main goals of the group's work are the basic understanding of magnetism and spin dependent electronic transport in thin films and nanostructures, the development of optimized magneto- and spin electronic devices and new methods for the creation of magnetic nanopatterns.
Their research activities are concentrated on nanometer-scale science and technology based on scanning probe methods (SPM). In particular, we investigate the fundamental relationship between nanostructure and nanophysical properties.
The group of Christoph Cremer focuses on the biophysics/analysis of the nuclear nanostructure, mainly of mamalian cell nuclei. For this, a combination of biocomputing simulations and experimental approaches is used.
Nano-biotechnology is to a considerable degree an interdisciplinary science: It combines physical laws, chemical procedures and biological principles on the nano-scale. That is exactly the goal of the ZFUW with this two-semester online programme. This unique offer in Germany combines the most modern educational devices and makes it possible to acquire high-level scientific knowledge.
The target group of this program is first and foremost professionals who are already working in industry, research institutes, universities and clinics, both nationally as well as abroad. The requirement for being admitted to this 3-year master program is a completed undergraduate course of studies in either engineering, science or medicine, taken at a university or polytechnic / university of applied science. Relevant working experience of at least one year has to be proven when applying for admission.
The CFN (Center for Functional Nanostructures), located at the University of Karlsruhe (TH) and the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH (Research Center Karlsruhe), is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to fundamental and applied research in some of the most fascinating fields in nanotechnology.
One of CINSaT's main characteristics is the broad interdisciplinary scope, participating disciplines ranging from physics, chemistry, biology and philosophy to mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering, including the Institute of Nanostructure Technology and Analytics (INA). Research of the center is accompanied by an interdisciplinary diploma course of studies Nanostructure and Molecular Science.
Within the Institute, a modern cleanroom up to class 1 exists, enabling the application of various modern nanostructure technologies, for example molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), ion beam deposition (IBD). Different other deposition technologies and etching processes in combination with optical and electron beam lithogrophy provide a key feature for the development of optoelectronic devices and nanosystem applications.
In 2 Jahren, wenn die ersten Bachelor Absolventen in den Nanostrukturwissenschaften zu erwarten sind, also im Wintersemester 2012/13 startet der Studiengang Master of Science Nanostrukturwissenschaften.
