Electron microscopy seminar 2024

This year's LEM seminar took place from 25-26.04.2024 in Bad Herrenalb. In addition to stimulating scientific exchange on existing and future projects, there was still enough time to enjoy socializing. See you next year!

Research Training Group "MatCom - ComMat" continued

The Research Training Group 2561 "MatCom-ComMat" is successfully entering its second funding period. We are delighted that the LEM is involved.
