Biochemists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now discovered the reason why. If the temperature r...

Prof. Dr. Jörg Libuda has been head of the new Chair of Interface Research and Catalysis at the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy since February 2019. However, Libuda, who is originally from Bochum, is not new to FAU as he has been working at the University for 13 years already. There’s a good re...

Nanostructures based on carbon are promising materials for nanoelectronics. However, to be suitable, they would often need to be formed on non-metallic surfaces, which has been a challenge – up to now. Researchers at FAU have found a method of forming nanographenes on metal oxide surfaces. Their res...
