Program

Single atom radio frequency fingerprinting

Modern nanoscience approaches the atomic scale: Individual atoms, rather than ensembles, carry the functionalities of man - made devices (switching, storing, calculating, catalyzing, etc). While single - atom imaging is routine since the advent of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) in the ‘80s, their chemical identification is difficult. I develop a “6th sense” that turns the STM from an imaging - to an identification tool with atomic resolution.

Neuroenhancement in everyday life

Public reactions to new technologies can occur in forms not foreseen by developers and experts. In this LIT project we address public views of medical and technological developments commonly summarized under the umbrella term neuroenhancement”. The project will add insights on how societally robust innovation can be promoted in modern societies.

Recurring patterns in gas - solid flows

Detailed simulations of multiphase flows are very time - consuming. We introduce a method that identifies reappearing structures in such systems and allows to study slow, long - lasting processes on highly dynamic backgrounds at low computational costs for applications like steelmaking and chemical process industries to environmental flows like atmospheric aerosol transport.
