Prestigious two million euro ERC funding for photocatalyst research at University of Oulu

A prestigious Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) has been awarded to Associate Professor Dr. Wei Cao at the University of Oulu, Finland. The 2M€ grant is to support a project entitled of “Cross-dimensional Activation of Two-Dimensional Semiconductors for Photocatalytic Heterojunctions”. Photocatalyst developments will follow materials properties regulated by spatial dimensions and photocatalysis studies consider time dependences of chemical reactions.

NANOMO researchers participating in development of new sample environments for synchrotron radiation facilities

NANOMO researchers (Samuli Urpelainen, from ATMOS research group)  and alumni (Esko Kokkonen, from MAX IV Laboratory) are participating in a project developing novel sample environments for studying atomic layer deposition (ALD) in situ / operando in a collaboration between MAX IV Laboratory, University of Helsinki and Lund University. The new sample environment, mimicking an ALD reactor allows monitoring chemical reactions during thin film growth in real time using ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.

Quantum physicists succeed in controlling energy losses and shifts

"To our great surprise, we observed a shift in the resonator frequency when we turned on the dissipation. This discovery took us on a journey to 70 years in the past, when Nobelist Willis Lamb made his first observations of small energy shifts in hydrogen atoms. We see the same physics, but for the first time in engineered quantum systems."
