Topics for BSc and MSc theses

Our group offers a broad variety of topics to be investigated in the course of earning a BSc or MSc degree. Topics can be tailored individually, chosen from a wide range of research scopes. An illustrated overview can also be found here.

BSc theses

  • Computational Design of conjugated 2D polymers and 2D metal-organic frameworks.
  • Computational study of coupling reactions to form molecular framework materials (MOFs, COFs, 2D polymers).
  • Computational screening of photoactive building blocks for molecular framework materials (MOFs, COFs)
  • Steric control of stacking angles of chromophores is metal-organic frameworks.
  • Computational design of van-der-Waals heterostructures
  • Advanced sensing with van-der-Waals heterostructures
  • Computational design of Actinide-based MOFs (together with Stumpf laboratory at HZDR)
  • Theoretical investigation of catalytic performance of surface reactions on 2D polymers

MSc theses

  • Separation of hydrogen and helium isotopes by exploiting nuclear quantum effects
  • Light-matter interactions in 2D polymers and MOFs
  • Theoretical invetigation of magnetism in 2D polymers and 2D MOFs
  • Topological insulators made of 2D polymers
  • Control of collidal growth of 2D nanoparticles using surfactants
