Polymer with honeycomb structure
Date:11/23/2009

ch the holes are subsequently etched into the layer of material. These holes are, however, much larger than just a few atoms in diameter. They are also not as near to each other and significantly less precisely shaped as with the "bottom-up" technique based on molecular self-assembly developed by the Empa and Max Planck group. In this process the molecular building blocks join together spontaneously at chemically defined linking points to form a regular, two-dimensional network. This allows graphene-like polymers to be synthesized with pores, which are finer than is possible by any other technique.

Empa Research Award for Matthias Treier

The Empa Research Award 2009 goes to Matthias Treier, one of the authors of the publication about the synthesis of a graphene-like polymer.

One of the main goals of nanoscale research is to gain the ability to easily and reproducibly create chemically tailored, ordered and highly regular nanoscale objects. Among such structures, organic nanostructures are of particular interest since they are set to play an important role in future electronic devices. In his PhD thesis Matthias Treier has investigated several new approaches towards the bottom-up fabrication of organic nanostructures on single crystal metal surfaces. His research objects were besides graphene and graphene-like polymers so-called metallofullerenes.

First presented in 2003, the Empa Research Award is awarded today for the seventh time on the occasion of the PhD Symposium. Empa's Research Committee has evaluated a number of Master's theses, doctoral dissertations and scientific publications before selecting the outstanding work of Matthias Treier.
