We welcome Christopher, who joins us from Kiel University in Germany for his PhD in the area of plasmon mediated catalysis.

Welcome to the group Zafer Say!

Zafer joins us from Bilkent University in Turkey for a 2-year postdoc on the topic of single particle catalysis.

Publication in Nature Communications

Our article entitled “Grain boundary mediated hydriding phase transformations in individual polycrystalline metal nanoparticles” by Alekseeva et al. was today published in Nature Communications. Read the Chalmers press release here.

Congratulations Svetlana Alekseeva to a very successful PhD thesis defense!

Svetlana has today very successfully defended her PhD thesis and is the newest doctor in the group! We are happy that she stays with us for one more year.

Sincere thanks also to the faculty opponent Prof. Astrid Pundt, and the thesis committee members Prof. Monika Fleischer, Prof. Martin Magnusson and Dr. Andrea Baldi for making the event a great success.

Barbora Spackova, welcome to the group!

Dr. Barbora Spackova joins us for a 2-year Post Doc on the topic of single particle nanoplasmonic sensing in nanofluidic structures. Welcome!

David Albinsson wins an “Outstanding Student Paper Award” at the SPP8 conference in Taipei, Taiwan

Big congrats to David for his outstanding performance at the 8th International Conference on Surface Plasmon Photonics (SPP8) held in Taiwan May 22-28, 2017 that earned him an Outstanding Student Paper Award for his talk entitled: “Single Particle Nanoplasmonic Sensing in Individual Nanofluidic Channels”.


Publication in Advanced Materials Interfaces

Our collaborative effort together with the Chorkendorff group at DTU, Denmark, entitled “High Specific and Mass Activity for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction for Thin Film Catalyst of Sputtered Pt3Y” is now published in Advanced Materials Interfaces.
