Tuning the energy gap

Jun 10, 2021|

What is already established for inorganic semiconductors stays a challenge for their organic counterparts: Tuning the energy gap by blending different semiconducting molecules to optimize device performance. Now, scientists from e-conversion and colleagues demonstrated how to reach this goal.

Play it safe: A microscopic perspective towards durable solid state batteries

Jun 2, 2021|

The ions in a solid state battery need to travel through multiple material interfaces which comes along with several challenges. e-conversion scientists and colleagues now shows that nano-scale coating at these interfaces may in fact stabilize the battery.

Graphene unlocks its potential for superresolution microscopy

May 19, 2021|

Scientists from e-conversion have unlocked the full potential of graphene for fluorescence microscopy - with a resolution world record of 3 nanometer. This might turn graphene into the new standard platform for microscopy. 


Third talk on "Energy of the Future"
The third digital lecture of this series is all about "Future Visions for a Sustainable Energy System". The event is organized by LMU and e-conversion.
For Girls only - TUM Explore Sommerprogramm
from to
In the summer break the TU München offers various STEM hands-on workshops exclusivly for girls. e-conversion organizes a two-day event on climate chance and renewable energies.
