Nano-(electro)chemistry day at the high-school Lerbermatt in Köniz (https://www.lerbermatt.ch/home/).
The Interfacial Electrochemistry group at the DCB supported this event by carrying out experiments related to the synthesis of nanoparticles, the electrodeposition of metal foams and the electrochemical screeening of plating additives used for the advanced metallization of interconnect features in integrated circuits.
On June 6, 40 high-school students and teachers from the ‘Freies Gymnasium Bern’ (fgb, http://www.fgb.ch/) visited the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry (DCB). The particular focus of their lab tour was on the current CO2 research activities at the DCB.
On the 6th of May 2019 Changzhe Sun started his PhD project in the Interfacial Electrochemistry Group.
