Research Project Thermal Transport

Project Thermal Transport

Contact: Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch

Thermal transport in nano- and mesostructured materials plays an important role in many technological applications. Efficient insulation as well as efficient heat dissipation are in the central focus of a lot of current research efforts. ...more


Project VISIRday

Contact: Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch

Cooling is a key technology of our modern life. A device capable of efficient sub-ambient daytime cooling without the need for an external power input would considerably lower our overall energy consumption. Nature offers a chance to off-load heat directly into the cold outer space via the so-called “sky window” ...more


Research Projects Plasmonics

Project Plasmonics

Contact: Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch

Interaction of light with nanostructured objects consisting of noble metals such as Au or Ag leads to an oszillation of electrons in the conduction band. At the resonance frequency most of the incident light is absorbed by this resonator, which dimensions are typically smaller than the wavelength of light. ...more


Research Project Self-assembly

Project Self-assembly

Contact: Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch

Self-assembly of monodisperse colloidal particles readily leads to well-defined nanostructured materials. Such systems can be used to fabricate hierarchically structured hybrid materials or they can be used as templating mask, for instance for nanosphere lithography. ...more



Research Project PhoXonics

Project PhoXonics

Contact: Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch

Color by structure is a widely known phenomena and can be found in the bright iridescent colors of opals and butterfly wings. This bright color derives from a strict and well-defined undulation of the refractive index of a given material. Several synthetic approaches have been undertaken over the past decades to mimic this intriguing coloration mechanism. ...more



Research Project Mechanics

Project Mechanics

Contact: Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch

Granular materials feature very intriguing mechanical properties, which differ vastly from their solid bulk materials. An everyday example of granular mechanics can be inferred from ground coffee powder. ...more
