    Invited by Key Laboratory of Colloid, Interface and Chemical Thermodynamics (ICCAS), Prof. Eychmüller from TU Dresden visited our group on Sep. 4th, 2012. During his visit, a lecture titled “Superstructures from Nanoparticles: how and why” was performed. Prof. Gao awarded certificate of distinguished professor of ICCAS to Prof. Eychmüller.
    The theme of the lecture Prof. Eychmüller gave was the prepatation of composite nanosturctured materials through aerogel. Assembly of different nanomaterials into aetogel was mainly presented in the lecture, which was divided into “Non-ordered nanostructures” and “ordered nanostructures” according to their structural characteristics. Compared with “top-down” method, nanostructured materials assembled by metal or semiconductor nanocrystals through aerogel method have much more surface area or lower density properties, which can be applied into catalyst, biomedicine and micro-optics fields and so on.. The lecture was straightaway and full of interest, and was warmly welcomed by all listeners.
    Prof. Eychmüller worked at Max-Planck-Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (Berlin, Germany) as postdoctor from 1984 to 1986, and carried research work mainly on “Catalytic Processes on the Molecular Level” at University of California from 1987 to 1988. After that, he focused on studies of structure and photophysics of semiconductor nanocrystals at Hahn-Meitner-Institute (Berlin, Germany) as researcher. From 1994 to 2005, he worked as Senior Researcher in Prof. Horstweller group at University of Hamburg. Since 2005, Prof. Eychmüller have been the chief of Physical chemistry and Photochemistry department at TU Dresden. Till now, Prof. Eychmüller have numerous publications on top-level journals such as JACS, Angew, Adv.Mater. and so on.
