Seminar
Nanostructured conductors (for example: gold, silver) interact with electromagnetic waves in fascinating and potentially useful ways; the scientific domain studying this is called plasmonics. Progress in the fabrication of nanomaterials gives access to structures with tailored plasmonic properties. Placing light-absorbing and -emitting molecules near such structures can result in enhancement of specfic photonic properties, enabling more sensitive detection, brighter light emission or increased harvesting of luminous energy, although it can be tricky to achieve this in practice.

Seminar
Note different time and location. The oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is the major source of overpotential loss in low-temperature fuel cells.  Expensive, Pt-based materials have been found to be the most effective catalysts, but exploration of alternatives has been hampered by stability constraints at the typical operating conditions of low pH and high potential.

Seminar
With the rapid growth of solar and wind energy, a new challenge arises: how to store renewable electricity to warrant a continuous energy supply? A series of different electricity storage technologies exists (pumped hydropower, compressed air, Li-ion batteries, etc.), but none of them has enough geographical possibilities or material abundancy to store sufficient electricity for a global transition to solar and wind energy only. Therefore, new storage technologies are being investigated.

Workshop
The organisers of the Workshop on the Exploration of Low-Temperature Plasma Physics (WELTPP) are glad to announce the 21st edition of our yearly workshop. This two-days-workshop is a unique opportunity for young plasma scientists to get in touch in an informal atmosphere. This workshop is intended for active scientists working in the field of low temperature plasma physics and usually covers low up to atmospheric pressure plasmas, modelling and diagnostic techniques. Please consider a participation of yourself, your group members and help us by sharing the announcement within your network!
