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. Continue reading “Nanoscale Distance Measurements in EPR and Fluorescence Spectroscopies (August 28-29, 2018)”

Alumni meeting (August 24, 2018)

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.
