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!

New LND member

— We are very pleased to welcome Constantin to our group. He is one of our own, having studied chemistry at the EPFL and having worked in our lab previously. Most recently, he completed his Master’s project at ETH where he developed new characterization tools in the field of attosecond spectroscopy.

New Phd member

— Oliver did his Master's in Munich at the Technical University and the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, where he studied crystal growth and developed a passion for diffraction techniques, working with x-ray and neutron diffraction. He has since seen the light and decided that pulsed electrons are even cooler. We are excited he is joining our team!
