• Happy birthday Gerhard Ertl
    The department congratulates our emeritus, Prof. Gerhard Ertl, Nobel laureate in chemistry, on his 85th birthday
  • Nuclear dynamics of singlet exciton fission in pentacene single crystals
    Femtosecond electron diffraction experiments probe the molecular motions accompanying singlet exciton fission in single crystal pentacene
  • Ralph Ernstorfer becomes Professor at Technische Universität Berlin
    He has been appointed as Professor at the Institut für Optik und Atomare Physik of the Technische Universität Berlin on June 1st 2021
  • Nonequilibrium Charge-Density-Wave Order Beyond the Thermal Limit
    Coherent charge density wave dynamics unravel the underlying transient energy landscape and a stabilization of order in the nonthermal system.
  • Terahertz anisotropic magnetoresistance
    Measuring ultrafast electron motion in magnets reveals that anisotropic magnetoresistance not only arises from electron collisions.
  • Ultrafast dynamical Lifshitz transition
    Ultrafast topological phase transition: Demonstration of light-induced modulation of a Fermi surface topology
    Research in the Department of Physical Chemistry focusses on the dynamics of elementary processes in solids and at surfaces, in particular, ultrafast dynamics of electronic excitations, electron-phonon coupling and interfacial charge transfer, surface reactions and molecular processes at interfaces as well as light-matter interaction at the nanoscale.
