Research Group Schmidt-Mende: Hybrid Nanostructures
We are interested in organic and hybrid nanostructures. One focus of our research is concerned with the fabrication and investigation of organic/inorganic hybrid solar cells with a focus on the fundamental physical processes in the devices, such as organic and perovskite solar cells. We aim to control the morphology to investigate the influence on device performance and physics. We investigate organic-organic, organic-inorganic and inorganic-inorganic interfaces and nanostructures that are responsible for functional properties. Fundamental processes of charge generation, transport and recombination as well as light coupling are directly influenced by manipulation of the interface and its nanostructure.

Soft Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics
Soft condensed matter comprises classes of materials whose properties are dominated by fluctuations and correlations. In addition to complex liquids (polymers, liquid crystals, gels), in particular, biomolecules, cells, and the like belong to soft matter. Their structures and dynamics can be controlled by tiny external forces. Therefore, soft matter systems are excellently suited for basic research on highly driven systems as well as for many technological applications.
At the department, in particular colloidal suspensions are studied, viz solid particles suspended in a liquid. By combining theoretical and experimental methods, as well as computer simulations, fundamental and cross-scale insights can be gained in the fields of material physics and biophysics.
