ACMiN Seminar: „X-ray perspective on nanomaterials chemistry and nanodevices”
It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the Krakow Condensed Matter Seminar which will be held on Thursday, December 2nd at 2.00 p.m. in the ACMiN auditorium no.: 1.02A on the second floor, bldg. D-16 (Kawiory Street 30). Alternatively, you can join the meeting via the link below:
The lecture entitled „X-ray perspective on nanomaterials chemistry and nanodevices” will be given by Prof. Dr. Dorota Koziej (CHyN, Hamburg University, Germany) who will join us in person.
Over the past years we have developed various approaches to fabricate materials with sophisticated chemical and structural complexity. We have focused on synthesis in non-aqueous solution since this approach is not limited to one particular class of materials. Thus, it gives us flexibility to tailor the composition and properties of materials in respect to the application. In this talk, I will present how X-ray synchrotron methods, far from merely providing new tools, are extending the ways we study, understand and design such complex structures. Particularly, combination of X-ray spectroscopic, scattering and microscopic methods and rapid data acquisition help to uncover the complex chemical world behind the synthesis of functional materials. It gives complementary information about chemical reaction in solution and nucleation, growth and crystal phase transition of nanoparticles.
