On August 8 students of nanoscience and nanotechnology participated in an excursion to AIXTRON SE in Herzogenrath. There they could witness how the principles of micro-, nanotechnology and semiconductor physics are put into practice.
A visit to the Aachener Dom and a delicious meal made this excursion a great success. Thanks to Dr Bablich and to Prof Heuken for this memorable and great opportunity!
Nano-Seminar on July 12 at 5 PM in Room H-C 3309. Zidu Li speaks about "Electrochemical metallization memristive devices in emerging technologies"
