General Description

Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, is a public research university in the cities of Erlangen and Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany. It is the second largest state university in the state Bavaria. It has 5 faculties, 23 departments/schools, 30 clinical departments, 19 autonomous departments, 656 professors, 3,404 members of academic staff and roughly 13,000 employees.

The Institute of Particle Technology in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering focuses on the importance of surfaces and interfaces to control the properties of particulate materials in different areas of science and technology. Starting from a molecular understanding of particle surfaces and interfaces, methods of particle production and processing are examined in hierarchically structured approaches. The experimental work is supported by theoretical approaches and models including Molecular modelling, continuum approaches and particle-based methods.

Key Persons and Expertise

Prof. Nicolas Vogel, associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, leads the self-assembled materials group, which is part of the Institute of Particle Technology. Being a chemist by training, his work focuses on colloid and interface sciences and includes the synthesis of colloidal micro- and nanoparticles, their physicochemical and interfacial properties as well as their capacities to self-assemble into ordered superstructures. The Vogel group combines a fundamental understanding of the physics of self-organization processes with an interest in the emergent properties of structured materials, focusing on light-matter interactions and controlling the substrate wettability. At UoE ESR5 will be enrolled and Nicolas will co-organize the training event on polymer chemistry.
