A new paper by our PhD student Yara was just published in ACS Omega! In this work, we showed how hierarchical surface roughness can enhance the stability of a ionic liquid film on top of a surface. You can find the complete paper here.  
Herbert and Niki
Yesterday Herbert successfully defended his PhD thesis, becoming the second PhD graduate from the Vogel Group. Congratulations!
EG_review_ChiralFab_TOC_sharepic
A chiral plasmonics review? Don´t panic, we have you covered! In our review, we discuss mostly harmless theory, as well as the design and fabrication of large-area chiral plasmonic substrates. We hope this more tutorial-style review provides easy access to the complex field, and brings chiral plasmonics closer to applications…

Together with Fedja Wendisch and Gilles R. Bourret we fabricated anisotropic Si nanowire arrays over large areas. The pallet of the possible cross-sections was extended to elliptical and crescent-shaped wires using MACE and colloidal lithography. Controlled bundling occurs, leading to anisotropic surface topographies. Find our just accepted paper in Nanoscale Advances.

A new paper by our PhD student Salvatore was just accepted in Advanced Materials Interfaces! In this work, we showed how repellent liquid-infused surfaces can adhere to various substrates via mussel-inspired chemistry. You can find the full paper here.

Salvatore and Teresa presented their research on the Baybionik project “Auf Rutschpartie mit der Kannenpflanze” at the “Ideenforum Bionicum” last week. You can watch the virtual event on YouTube.  
20 03 16 Prize NSM – Eric
Eric won a prize for his contributed talk about ‘Chiral Surface Lattice Resonances’ in this year’s nanoGe spring meeting (#NSM21). The symposium about self-organization at all scales (#SELFNC21) took place on the 11th and 12th of March, this year online due to given circumstances. Congratulations Eric!

We are proud to announce that Nicolas received the “Best lecturer” award from the MAP students during the annual MAP poster session. Thanks to all the students for the engagement during the semester and during the event!
NewYearParty2021
The Vogel lab celebrated the new year 2021 with a digital zoom party. It was a fun evening with games and quizes and we hope that everyone enjoyed it. We are all impatiently looking forward to a real, in-person party in this year and hope that life will normalize eventually!…
Eric
We are pleased to announce that Eric was elected as the vice president of “SPIE student chapter” at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg. SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, was founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. Serving 255,000 constituents from 183 countries, the not-for-profit society advances emerging technologies through…

Nicolas presents a seminar with the title “Tailoring structural coloration in self-assembled materials” as a part of the lecture series „Soft Interface Seminar“ organized by our Japanese colleagues Prof. Takahara-sensei, Prof. Yusa-sensei, Prof. Sakai-sensei and Prof. Fujii-sensei. The seminar will take place on Friday, December 18, 2020 at 17:30-19:00 (JST)…
MRSMeeting
2020 Virtual MRS session: Lessons from nature: from biology to bioinspired materials featuring members of the Aizenberg family. For nearly 50 years, researchers from around the world have converged in Boston for the preeminent materials event of the year—the MRS Fall Meeting. Due to COVID-19, this year’s meeting is being…

Our alumnus Tobias was featured in the last week’s edition of the well-known German economics magazine “Wirtschaftswoche” together with his brother. They have founded the company Atlas Aero GmbH in summer 2019 and are developing a personal hybrid airplane called Origin – a flying car so to say, also known…

In the summer semester 2020, different departments of the university launched the „Publikumspreis für exzellente Lehre“ (Audience Award for Excellent Teaching). All students of the Department of Chemical and Biological engineering had the opportunity to nominate lecturers who have distinguished themselves through particularly good teaching and innovative solution to the…
Vogel1
Prof. Vogel and his team introduce research topics of the group. We see how biological functionalities such as the self-cleaning surfaces of plants or the shining colors of animals can be reproduced in the lab by controlling the structure of materials using self-assembly processes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkn_hyMjibw
Niki2
Nicolas is presenting in the Particle-Based Materials Symposium 2020. The Particle-Based Material Symposium is a small workshop (50-100 participants) that has, in the last 4 years, brought together (mainly) young scientists and engineers from different communities that all share the goal of creating functionality in materials using particles. This year,…

Nicolas will present at the NICE-Conference on October 14, 2020. The NICE-Conferences are organized with the objective to share new developments in the field of bioinspired chemistry & materials as well as in Optics Photonics & Materials and to understand new challenges that are being faced in these fields of…
BayBionikVideo
As part of our collaboration with BayBionik, Teresa and Salva explain how their repelling surfaces work. This collaborative project focuses on developing new enviromental friendly coatings which could be utilized to make different surfaces slippery. Such slippery surfaces have a vast range of applications from self-cleaning windows to anti-icing surfaces.  …
