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!
