Dr. Manuela Schiek has obtained the Albert-Weller-price of the
‘Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker’ and the ‘Deutsche
Bunsen-Gesellschaft’ for her Ph.D. thesis on functionalized, light
emitting organic nanofibers. The price is given annually for the most
outstanding, ground breaking scientific thesis in chemistry. In her
thesis work, performed in parallel at the Chemistry Department of the
University of Oldenburg in the groups of Prof. Al-Shamery and Prof.
Luetzen and the University of Southern Denmark in the group of Prof.
Rubahn, Dr.Schiek has developed a new way to synthesize organic
molecules with interesting new optoelectronic properties and to grow
nanoaggregates from them. This is believed to be an important step
towards the improvement of future optoelectronic devices via molecular
nanotechnology. Dr.Schiek is now working in the NanoSYD center of SDU
in Sønderborg in the group of Prof. Rubahn on further developing her
Figure: Fluorescence microscopy image of some of the light emitting new nanoaggregates Dr.Schiek has made.
