At LINXS between June 2019 - August 2019
Thomas Hellweg currently works at the Faculty of Chemistry, Dep. of Physical and Biophysical Chemistry, Bielefeld University. Thomas does research in Physical Chemistry and Materials Science with a focus on "Soft Matter". One of the current projects of the Hellweg group is 'Smart core-shell microgels as nanoparticle carriers for catalysis.' Another important current project is the study of saponins and their interaction with lipid bilayers. The group uses mainly scattering experiments (light, X-rays, and neutrons) complemented by high resolution imaging techniques (cryogenic transmission electron microscopy (Cryo-TEM), scanning force microscopy, scanning electron microcopy (SEM), and different optical microscopy techniques. In addition all standard techniques to study colloids are used.
