Postdoc position

April 2001-June 2002, 

in the group of Prof. Stucky 

at the University of California at Santa Barbara 

with a fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation


Summary

We investigated novel non-aqueous sol-gel routes for the synthesis of low-dimensional and highly crystalline oxidic nanoparticles such as quasi 0-dimensional, spherical anatase nanoparticles, quasi 1-dimensional vanadium oxide nanorods and quasi 2-dimensional tungsten oxide nanoplatelets.
