Bremer Study Award for Markus Rohdenburg

Markus Rohdenburg receives the Bremer Study Award for his doctoral thesis. Congratulations!

A contract has been signed with IOM

The Ion Soft-landing laboratory at IOM is now officially a joint lab of our group with the IOM. A contract has been signed.


Our research is funded by a Freigeist Fellowship of the Volkswagen Foundation, by the CRC "Polymers under multiple constraints" and the Research Training Group "Hydrogen Isotopes 1,2,3H". We thank the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie for a material cost allowence.


Our primary goal is the utilization of charged molecules and their fragments – generated within a mass spectrometer – for the synthesis of condensed phase matter.
