The Nienhaus group seeks to untangle the optoelectronic properties of semiconductors at the nanoscale and leverage these for light-harvesting applications.

Areas: Analytical, Materials
Specialties: Macromolecules

We specialize in understanding the weird and wonderful behavior of charged polymers, polyelectrolytes, at surfaces, as thin films and in the bulk.

Areas: Physical, Materials
Specialties: Computational Chemistry, Spectroscopy and Photochemistry

We explore chemical self-organization at the mesoscale, materials synthesis far from the thermodynamic equilibrium, hierarchically ordered matter, and prebiotic chemistry.
