CFN Symposium 2013 - Friday, July 26

CFN Symposium 2013


The DFG Center for Functional Nanostructures is celebrating its twelfth birthday with this one-day symposium. Twelve years of highly successful research in Nano-Photonics, Nano-Electronics, Molecular Nanostructures, Nanostructured Materials, Nano-Biology, and Nano-Energy have not only resulted in numerous scientific breakthroughs, hundreds of publications, and dozens of patent applications, but also in more than forty young researchers leaving Karlsruhe with a professorship offer.

We have invited nine former and current CFN junior research group leaders to provide us with an overview of their scientific work and to show us how some of the ideas developed within CFN have laid the foundation for very successful research groups.

Venue: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Gaede Lecture Hall, Bldg. 30.22
