Welcome to the Graduate School Advanced Materials and Processes
The interdisciplinary program for doctoral researchers in the
Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials

The Graduate School Advanced Materials and Processes (GS AMP) has been established within the frame of the Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials in 2009. The GS AMP offers a program for Master / Diploma graduates who want to graduate in topics related to the Cluster of Excellence. The ambition of the GS AMP is to open students an attractive and especially interdisciplinary way to their promotion.

    03. March 2017 Verfahren zur DNA-programmierten Materialsynthese Erstmals ist es gelungen, komplexe Kristallgitter, sogenannte Clathrate, aus Nanoteilchen mithilfe von DNA-Strängen gezielt herzustellen. Die programmierte Synthese von Clathraten ist beispielgebend für die präzise Herstellung neuartiger... more »

  • Picture of the month: Scrutinizing individual porphyrin molecules at room-temperature with scanning tunneling microscopy

    01. March 2017 One of the main goals within the EAM is the controlled fabrication of functional structures and materials from molecules. To do so we follow a bottom-up approach, in which we rely on the adsorption behavior of functional molecules, namely porphyrins, on various substrates. In the present study,... more »

  • Picture of the month: Crystal growth of indium nitrite nanorods

    01. February 2017 InN is a semiconductor material with a direct bandgap of ~0.7 eV and is a promising material for applications in next generation photovoltaics such as hot carrier solar cells. InN nanorods are fabricated by a chemical vapor deposition technique using a vapor-liquid-solid growth method. The scanning... more »
