Welcome to the website of Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch
My team and I work on periodic and amorphous functional nanostructures using a wide range of materials. Our predominant route towards well-defined nano- and mesostructured materials starts with the design of colloidal particles, which resemble the fundamental building blocks.
These are being assembled into two- and three-dimensional arrays, which not only adds an additional length scale of structure, but also functionality. We have developed simple, yet robust techniques to assemble colloidal spheres into ordered monolayers. Of particular interest are the optical, mechanical, and thermal properties of latex particles, hollow spheres, and plasmonic nanoparticles.
We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD student and postdoc researcher to work on the new ERC project - VISIRday starting in March 2017! Help the world to become a cooler place! Send your application including motivation letter, CV and publication list to Markus Retsch.
