ATM – Nanoscale Distance Measurements in EPR and Fluorescence Spectroscopies (August 28-29, 2018)


This module is suitable for doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields. Some background in quantum mechanics is advisable but no direct prerequisite. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of electron paramagnetic resonance and fluorescence in general and especially emphasises the EPR and fluorescence methods for measuring distances on the nanometer scale.


Each day of the two-day program starts with a series of lectures in the morning covering the theoretical knowledge by basic lectures and the discussion of applications and problems. It is followed by hands-on experiments on instructive examples during the afternoon.

Alumni meeting (August 24, 2018)

Our alumni meeting 2018 will take place on August 24, 2018.

We will meet at:
Villa Tillmanns (Research Academy Leipzig),
Wächterstr. 30
04107 Leipzig

The meeting will take place from 5-11 p.m.
Comfortable train connections between Halle and Leipzig are available every 30 minutes at station Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz.

Our alumni meeting aims at the establishment of links and to foster the exchange between former and current iRTG members. Former members will talk on their career steps in industry or academia.

jDPG PhD Seminar – November 9-11, 2018 in Heidelberg

Das Seminar verschafft euch einen Einblick in das Thema des Wissenschaftsmanagements auf mehreren Ebenen in der Physik.
Hast auch du dich schon mit der Frage beschäftigt: Wie dokumentiere ich richtig oder gehe bei der Datenhaltung sinnvoll vor? Interessiert dich das Verfahren einer Juniorprofessur und wie sehen weitere Karrieremöglichkeiten in der Wissenschaft aus? Oder wie managt ein Professor oder Postdoc seine Arbeitsgruppe?

Smart Molecules – Supramolecular Anions Chemistry (September 20-21)


This module provides an overview of some recent developments in the field of anion recognition and links it to topics in supramolecular chemistry, biomedical applications and nanochemistry. The doctoral researchers will gain insight into specific syntheses and modifications of anion receptors, their specific functions and their integration into functional materials with optimized catalytic activity and adjustable physical, magnetic, electronic, biological and optical properties.
