Spectroscopy (greek „Ghost seeing“) is the interaction of light and matter. The literal translation is quite appropiate, because with the use of these techniques, not the real molecules/atoms can be seen, but only their images and „shadows“ they produce. The result is a chart, where energy, time, frequency,…. are related, this we call a spectrum. weiterlesen...

SCATAPNUT (Scattering and tapping on soft hard open nuts) With the five year project (1,99 Mio€) we will enlarge our instrumental set up and group and focus on the micro- and nano-level of nut shells. The objectives of SCATAPNUT are threefold: 1) develop in-situ methods for in-depth characterization at the micro- and nano level 2) weiterlesen…
