2 October - 26 October 2017
My stay in the Crystallography Group at the University of Bremen took place from 2 to 26 October 2017. The research topics raised during my internship were closely related to the subject of the work carried out within my PhD studies at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology. The subject of collaboration was a computational study of the vibrational properties (phonons) in zeolitic imidazolate frameworks.
Thanks to the opportunity to pursue an internship at the University of Bremen, funded by MAPEX, and the invaluable help of Dr. Michael Fischer I learned a new technique of calculation of vibrational properties of porous crystals, which will be very useful for my future work, within and beyond my PhD studies. Besides my development in the field of methodology we also made a considerable progress in solving very interesting scientific problem.
As a result of the work done at MAPEX, the following paper has been published:
Phonons and Adsorption-Induced Deformations in ZIFs: Is It Really a Gate Opening?
