Laboratory of Molecular Nanodynamics LND

Time-resolved and Ultrafast Electron Microscopy – Dynamics of nanoscale systems – Helium Nanodroplets

Welcome to the LND website!

We are working with an Ultrafast Electron Microscope to study dynamics at the nanoscale with a particular interest in molecular systems. We are still looking for some talented and motivated people to join our team. Please, take a look around!

Shouts & Murmurs

Publication in ACS Nano

— Our manuscript entitled 'In-Situ Observation of Coulomb Fission of Individual Plasmonic Nanoparticles' has been accepted for publication in ACS Nano. 

Congratulations to Dr. Veronica Oliver for her public thesis defense!

— Thesis title : Orientation, rotation and solvation of ions in helium nanodroplets

Spring news !

— Miriam obtained her master's from Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg where she studied Chemical engineering. We are looking forward and we welcome her and wish her every success !

New Phd member

— Micro and Nanotechnologies for integrated systems are part of the latest studies of Gabriele. He obtained his master from Politecnico di Torino, Grenoble INP – Phelma together with EPFL in February 2018. We are pleased to welcome Gabriele in our team !

Summer new PhD student

— We are delighted to welcome Chengcheng to our crew ! She just received her master’s from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology where she worked in the field of Magnetoelectric nanocomposites. Welcome aboard !

Post doc coming !

— With a strong experience in double-resonance infrared action spectroscopy of isolated and solvated mass-selected ions, we are please to announce the arrival of Jonathan. He received his PhD from University of Wisconsin-Madison. Welcome !

First images with pulsed electrons!

— The micrograph is one of the first that we recorded with a pulsed electron beam and shows core/shell particles on graphene.

New Phd member

— Christoph caught the fever for doing microscopy early on in his high school days. He went on to study Materials Science in Jena, one of the historic centers of light microcopy, and received his master’s from ETH, working in the field of atomic force microscopy. We are absolutely excited to welcome Christoph to our team!

ERC Starting Grant 2019

— We are excited that we have received an ERC Starting Grant.

We are growing!

— We are excited that Pavel is starting his Ph.D. with us on February 1. He is joining us from St. Petersburg State University. He has a background in ultrafast spectroscopy and has been involved in several projects at DESY. Welcome!
