Rashmi Runjhun, NaMeS PhD student, participated in the secondments at the Laboratory Of Photonics and Interfaces. She provided her research work in the distinguished lab of Prof. Michael Graetzel at EPFL Switzerland.
Airit Agasty participated in the secondment at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research. The main aim of the lab visit was to show the applicability of universal model of viscosity developed in the team of Professor Holyst, across different macroscopic variables for different polymer systems.
Wassie Mersha Takele participated in the secondment at the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Tuebingen, Germany. The main objective of his project was to investigate and influence the optical, spectral, and tautomerization properties of single molecules inside an optical microcavity.
Carolina Cruz participated in the secondment at the Institute of Physical Chemistry “Rocasolano”. The purpose was to perform Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations on LAMMPS (Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator) under supervision of Prof. Enrique Lomba.
Richard Loffler participated in the secondment at the Department of cellular, computational and integrative biology (CIBIO) at the University of Trento. There he could take advantage of the local equipment and personnel to start a new project related to his thesis, regarding the study of crowding behavior of self-propelled droplets
Horacio Serna has worked at Institute of Physical Chemistry “Rocasolano” (secondment institution) from 02.10.2019. to 11.03.2020. The main goal was to study the dynamic aspects of systems with competing interactions both in bulk and under confinement in simple geometries.
Richard Löffler has visited two universities, at Hiroshima and Chiba. During his visit from the 24th of February to the 8th of March at Hiroshima University he met with Prof. Shinpei Tanaka to do a lot of experimental work on their current project, investigating the self-motion of Ethyl Salycilate droplets on a soap solution.
