Successful Joint Sino-German Research Funding Applications by two PIs of the Department
Matthias Wagner, Inorganic Chemistry, and Clemens Glaubitz, Biophysical Chemistry, succeeded in a highly competitive bilateral funding initiative by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
The Glaubitz lab will collaborate with Prof. Xiao He at the East China Normal University, Shanghai. The aim of the project is to link high-end solid-state NMR experiments with novel quantum chemical computations and MD simulations in order to link structural, functional and optical properties of membrane-bound photoreceptors.
The Wagner lab is concerned with the development of boron-containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons as next-generation materials for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic photovoltaic devices. The research will be conducted jointly with Profs. Todd Marder (Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg), Suning Wang (Beijing Institute of Technology), and Jun Liu (Chinese Academy of Science, Changchun).
