Cattani-Scholz - Teaching
Group leader: Dr. Anna Cattani-Scholz (Chair of Prof. Dr. Martin Stutzmann)


Our teaching courses are designed on the principles of the “Constructive Alignment”, an example of outcomes-based education (OBE) model developed by J. Biggs and adopted by the TUM ( This approach is based on defining learning objectives as clearly and concisely as possible and on en­couraging students to apply "deep learning" tech­niques for competency acquisition.

The activities provided by our group focuses on advances in functional interfaces, with a particular emphasis on multi-component and multi-phase materials systems for electronic, sensing, and biomedical applications, highlighting the roles and prospects for emerging materials, such as graphene, diamond, and compound semiconductors. Furthermore, challenges in determining the complex mechanisms of interaction at interfaces between biological and inorganic systems are addressed.

Please navigate to the WSI homepage to find more about our courses:

  • “Physics and Chemistry Functional Interfaces”, lecture and seminar for Master Students
  • “Biosensing and Bioelectronics”, seminar for Master Students
  • Lab-course “Preparation and Properties of Self-Assembled Monolayers“ for Bachelor and Master Students
  • “Advances in bottom-up approaches in nanotechnology”, lecture for Master Students (together with Rui. N. Pereira)
