Natalia Olejnik-Feher along with the co-supervisor of her thesis – Dr Daniel Lee from CEA Grenoble - have been awarded measurement time to use the world’s highest magnetic field magnet for NMR spectroscopy (at the NHMFL) in a grant-based proposal system, to assess the stability of the organic-inorganic interfaces of metal oxide nanocrystals.
Natalia Olejnik-Fehér, NaMeS PhD student, visited the Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics in Grenoble, France. During her stay in Grenoble Natalia performed a series of test experiments on ZnO nanocrystals stabilized with diphenyl phosphate, that have been enriched with 17O in order to allow the detection.
Natalia Olejnik-Fehér, NaMeS PhD student, paricipated in the study visit at the Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics in Grenoble, France. The destination of the visit was Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) group from this Institute.
Neha Venkatesh Rangam, NaMeS PhD student, paricipated in the secondment to the Nagoya Institute of Technology (NITech), Japan. She had possibility work in Kawasaki & Ishii's Laboratory. The main goal of her project was to synthesize the carbon nanomaterials composite for the research project ‘Electron spectroscopy of novel nanocarbon systems for applications in medicine’.
Kumar Sarang, NaMeS Ph.D student, went for a two months research internship at Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS), Leipzig under ERASMUS Plus program cofinanced by NaMeS project. The main objective of the mobility was to learn and explore the use of technique of laser flash photolysis in the field of atmospheric chemistry.
Gabriel Morgado, NaMeS PhD student, participated in the secondment to the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). The objective of the secondment was twofold. First, Gabriel and research team in Paris completed first project on the scaling of Turing patterns.
Gabriel Rochinha Morgado, NaMeS PhD student, visited Laboratoire de Physique Theorique de la Matiere Condensee to perform research activity with the partner supervisor of the PhD program. These five days of intensive work have been helpful for the progress of the project.
Natalia Olejnik-Fehér, NaMeS PhD student, paricipated in the secondment to the Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics, Grenoble. The main goals of her project are: (i) systematic investigations on surface characterization as well as density and distribution of organic ligands and/or inorganic functional groups on the surface of bare and ligand-coated ZnO NCs with applications of various analytical techniques
