Schoolgirls conduct research in nanotechnology

Schoolgirls conduct research in nanotechnology – "GirlsGoScience" brings young women closer to MINT subjects

 

Eleven schoolgirls from Regensburg and the surrounding area spent two exciting days in the MINT labs as part of the "GirlsGoScience" project for girls. Using self-printed microscopes from the 3D printer and a simple single-board computer, they succeeded in making nanostructures visible and measuring them. "Transition Metal DiChalcogenides, or TMCD for short, are special crystals from which a layer just one atom thin can be taken by exfoliation. This so-called monolayer has exciting physical properties such as fluorescence," explains Johannes Holler, a doctoral student at the University of Regensburg, who has led the project for schoolgirls for the second time. The physics faculty's current collaborative research center is also conducting research on TMDC: possible applications include extremely small and power-saving chips or new types of lasers.
