Welcome Ishara Fernando!

We welcome Dr. Ishara Fernando as a Post Doc in the framework of the Mistra Environmental Nanoscience research programme. Ishara has a Ph.D. from Nanyang Technical University in Singapore.

Publication in Nature Communications

Our work entitled “Copper Catalysis at Operando Conditions—Bridging the Gap between Single Nanoparticle Probing and Catalyst-Bed-Averaging” has today been published in Nature Communications. Read the paper here!

Welcome David Tomecek!

We are very happy to welcome Dr. David Tomecek to our team! He will work within our hydrogen sensor efforts, together with our industry partners Insplorion AB and Powercell AB.

Publication in Science Advances

Our work entitled “Operando detection of single nanoparticle activity dynamics inside a model pore catalyst material” was today published in Science Advances. Read the article here.

Web application for alloy dielectric functions – SHARC

Based on our recent join work on late transition metal alloy dielectric functions, Paul Erhart’s team have developed a Web Application for alloy dielectric functions – check out the SHARC!

Publication in Advanced Functional Materials

Together with the team of Prof. Paul Erhart at our Department, we have published our work on dielectric functions of late transition metal alloys in Advanced Functional Materials. The work by Rahm et al. is entitled  “A Library of Late Transition Metal Alloy Dielectric Functions for Nanophotonic Applications.” DOI:10.1002/adfm.202002122

Paul and team have also made available a Web-application, from which the dielectric functions conveniently can be downloaded – SHARC.


Publication in ACS Applied Nanomaterials

Our work entitled “The Impact of Surfactants and Stabilizers on Palladium Nanoparticle – Hydrogen Interactions: Implications for Hydrogen Sensors” is now published in ACS Applied Nanomaterials. Link

Our research part of IVA’s 100 list 2020

The world’s fastest hydrogen sensor we have developed as part of our  SSF-funded Plastic Plasmonics project has been selected for the “100 list” by the Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA). The list highlights prominent and current research on sustainability that can create value in the form of knowledge, processes, products and business development. Link to our contribution.

We also highlight a second entry to the 100- list by our long-term collaborator Prof. Kasper Moth-Poulsen. Their successful entry entitled “Nanocatalytic Systems” was also generated as part of the Plastic Plasmonics project

This is why (our) air quality sensors are urgently needed!

Interesting documentary on Swedish TV on the negative impact bad air has on our health. Link

Publication in ACS Nano

Our work entitled “A Plasmonic Metasurface for Spatially-resolved Optical Sensing in Three Dimensions” is now published in ACS Nano. Link
