Physical Chemistry - Al-Shamery

Welcome to the Nanophotonics and Surface Chemistry group



  • The European doctorate program PCAM (Physics and Chemistry of advanced Materials) will host a monthly seminar series, starting mid-May. Details can be found on the program homepage.
  • Katharina Al-Shamery has started to be editor in chief of the Bunsen-Magazin of the German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry. The first issue she is responsible for has the theme "back to the year 2050" and is available open access. Nobel laureates, key figures in science and industry, students and pupils discuss on what they think our future will look like. If you are curious and love science fiction or serious analytical papers, read more...
  • Our PhD student Michael Siemer was awarded the best poster prize for his work presented at the workshop  „Future Perspectives in Catalysis“ in Bremerhaven. Lars Mohrhusen has won the 3rd place poster prize at the same event for his poster “Defect dependent adsorption of organic molecules on tungsten oxide clusters on rutile TiO2” . Congratulations to both!
  • The Workshop „Future Perspectives in Catalysis“ which is co-organized by the Research Training Group “Chemical Bond Activation” (GRK 2226) and our research group, was held in Bremerhaven from September 2 - 6, 2019.
