Unravelling the architecture vs. function relationship in graphene- and molecule-based supramolecular materials for (nano)electronics.


We are delighted to announce that the 13th European Conference on Molecular Electronics (ECME) will take place in Strasbourg on 15 September 2015. See details.



03/11/2014 Serena Morselli joins the group as a Master student. 

18/09/2014 The H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITNs "Integrated self-assembled SWITCHable systems and materials: towards responsive organic electronics – a multi-site innovative training action"  iSwitch (coordinated by Prof. Paolo Samorì) and "SupramolecularlY eNgineered arCHitectures for optoelectRonics and photONICS: a multi-site initial training action"  SYNCHRONICS (coordinated by Prof. Franco Cacialli, UCL) have both been invited to negotiation. We expect to be able to hire three new Early-Stage Researchers to start after 01/01/2015 within these two projects!

04/09/2014 Andrea Schlierf receives her PhD after successfully defending her thesis.
