Have you ever spilled your cup of coffee? You may have noticed how the coffee dries into an intriguing stain with a bright centre and a dark ring encircling it. This “coffee ring” forms because the liquid evaporates faster at the edges, inducing a flow from the droplet interior towards…

Bionic innovation towards environmental protection – The successful end of our joined project BayBionik with the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection was celebrated at a final event at the Bionicum in the Tiergarten Nürnberg. We presented our work on self-cleaning and sustainable surface coatings to the…
Insitu selffunction lubricant
From sticky mussel-inspired chemistry to the slippery liquid-infused surfaces, we could combine two bioinspired approaches with opposite interfacial properties to fabricate repellent surfaces with an in-situ self-functionalizing lubricant! New paper out in  in ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces! Read it here  
Giulia and teresa prize
We’re very happy our research caught some attention at the recent in-person events we attended! Teresa was awarded the best poster prize both at Processnet and Bioinspired Material 2022 and Giulia won the best talk award at the CLINT iRTG workshop. We’re glad our work on environmentally friendly repellent surface coatings…
Teresa’s news
New paper by Teresa is published in Green Chemistry!In this work we introduce a simple and environmentally benign method to create functional coatings mimicking the lotus leaf and the pitcher plant in a scalable process. In contrast to conventional fabrication processes that typically require toxic components and elevated temperatures, we…

Little budget, no microfluidic experience, but want to make water-in-oil-in-water droplets? No problem. Teaming up with SMaL, Junwei develop a simple method to make double emulsions of a single core and a micrometer-thick shell, using only centrifuge tubes and a vortex mixer. Full article here.

In November 2021, Prof. Nicolas Vogel of the Institute of Particle Technology was awarded the “Lehrpreis der technischen Fakultät” (Teaching award of the Faculty of Engineering). According to the selection committee, the awards reflects the excellent student evaluations of the courses given by Prof. Vogel over the last five years…

Colloidal supraparticles promise exciting applications. But are they mechanically stable enough to deliver these promises? We investigate the mechanics of colloidal supraparticles under compression. We find a scaling relationship between the supraparticle geometry and its fracture, and how the fracture is influenced by interparticle adhesion. Many thanks for Benoit Merle,…

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.
Teresa showed her research project “Auf Rutschpartie mit der Kannenpflanze” to interested young female students and answered questions about being a female scientist in engineering at the Girls Day of Bionicum Nürnberg today.
