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 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!

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!
