Congratulations to Jonas, Masoud, and Giovanni for their publication in Nature Communications entitled "Reactivity mapping of nanoscale defect chemistry under electrochemical reaction conditions." In March 2020, it was named one of the Top 50 read articles of 2019!


Congrats to Albert for winning a poster prize at the WE-Heraeus Seminar.


Jonas successfully defended his thesis (summa cum laude).


Congratulations to Jonas for winning a poster prize at the ISE 70th Annual Meeting in Durban, South Africa.


Welcome to our new Postdoc, Albert. He received a Marie Curie fellowship for "TECh-MoDe” and a Humboldt fellowship for "Nanoscale-enhanced Spectroscopies in Electrochemically-Gated Single-Molecule Devices."


Welcome to our new Postdoc, Azade.


For this publication in Electrochimica Acta, the team provides a quantitative electrochemical and SPRS study of sputtered thin film Au/Pt surfaces that allows designing hybrid films optimized for stable electrochemical Pt behavior and efficient Au plasmonic excitation.


For this work appearing in Ionics, novel nanocomposite polymer electrolytes bearing boehmite (Bh) cored polyvinylphosphonic acid (PVPA) were successfully produced and characterized.


Xiao's PNAS publication discusses correlated interfacial water transport and proton conductivity.


Jonas teaches a group of students how to make a solar cell with blackberries on Girls' Day at MPIP.


Welcome to Benjamin, our new Bachelor Student.


Welcome to our new Master student, Daniel.


Leonie successfully defended her thesis.


Congratulations to Jana for being a Deutschland Stipendium recipient. She will be partially sponsored by Altana AG.

Welcome, Jana and Nils, our two new TERS group Master students.


Together with Juan Feliu's group in Alicante, we disentangled the contributions of Stark shift and coverage dependence on the vibrational shift of sulfate on Au(111) with EC-SEIRAS. The work has been accepted for publication in the Special Issue on Interfacial Electrochemistry in J. Chem. Phys. Great work, Jonas.


Congratulations, Jonas, on winning the SurfCat poster prize.


The Domke group is growing again: welcome, Ricardo, Giovanni and Masoud.


Jonas teaches a group of students how to make a solar cell with blueberries on Girls' Day at MPIP.


Jonas has been selected as new Junior member of the Gutenberg Akademie at JGU Mainz.


Together with colleagues from MPI Eisenforschung, Xiao quantifies the hydration forces in PEM mimicking surfaces (accepted for publication in PCCP).


Jonas' Current Opinion in Electrochemistry discusses the potential that EC-TERS entails for the field of electrocatalysis.


Xiao successfully defended her thesis at the UvA.


Natalia successfully defended her thesis "Electrochemical TERS - development and application."


Natalia's contribution to this year's SERS Faraday Discussion about the effect of STM parameters on TERS has been published.


Outreach activities: Gabi and Katrin carried out exciting water experiments with year-2 kids at the Erich Kästner Grundschule in Mainz-Bretzenheim.


Katrin organized a very successful Tango-meets-Leadership workshop for MPIP group leaders lead by Incendo Berlin.


Philipp's latest work on the growth mechnism of CuBTC MOF has been accepted for publication in Crystal Growth & Design.


Jonas helped MPIC scientists establish the origin of Mg crusts on Gothic cathedrals. Read about it in Atmospheric Environment.


Katrin has received a prestigious Boehringer Ingelheim Plus 3 fellowship of ca. 900 kEUR to expand the TERS group activities toward studying the (electro)chemical behaviour of individual metallo-proteins in the coming three years.


Ulmas' invited article on Surface-enhanced infrared spectroscopy (SEIRAS) has been accepted in Encyclopedia of Interfacial Chemistry - Surface Science and Electrochemistry.


Natalia's fantastic first EC-TERS adenine/Au(111) results have been published as VIP in Angewandte Chemie.
