Welcome to the laboratory of Prof. Nicolas Vogel

Research in the self-assembled materials group gravitates around the self-organization of colloidal particles. We seek a fundamental understanding of self-assembly processes to create defined nanostructured materials and surfaces. We investigate the emergence of functional properties from such structures, for example to control the wetting of a surface, to create vivid structural coloration, or to fabricate plasmonic nanostructure arrays.

Check out our new work on decahedral clusters! Another collaboration in @VogelLab with Chrameh (Engel team) and Silvan (Spiecker team) that continues to unveil the wonders of colloids in spherical confinement! This time, it’s about kinetics!
