Journal Article
Riedel, S., Li, L., Sakr, A. K., Schlöder, T., Klein, S., Beckers, H., …Hasenstab-Riedel, S. (2021). Searching for Monomeric Nickel Tetrafluoride: Unravelling Infrared Matrix Isolation Spectra of Higher Nickel Fluorides. Angewandte Chemie International Edition, https://doi.org/10.1002/anie.202015501

Binary transition metal fluorides are textbook examples combining complex electronic features with most fundamental molecular structures. High‐valent nickel fluorides are among the strongest known fluorinating and oxidizing agents, but there is a lac...

Laser sintering of gravure printed indium tin oxide films on polyethylene terephthalate for flexible electronics (2019)
Journal Article
Serkov, A., Snelling, H., Heusing, S., & Martins-Amaral, T. (2019). Laser sintering of gravure printed indium tin oxide films on polyethylene terephthalate for flexible electronics. Scientific reports, 9(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-38043-y

Tin doped indium oxide (ITO) thin films provide excellent transparency and conductivity for electrodes in displays and photovoltaic systems. Current advances in producing printable ITO inks are reducing the volume of wasted indium during thin film pa...
