Uhlig Group

General activity

The group of ass. prof. Jens Uhlig is focused on studying charge carrier dynamics and structural dynamics with x-ray - and optical methods. The group uses large scale facilities as well as develops novel in-house table top spectroscopy setup. Following the idea "seeing is believing" we use the element selectivity of hard and tender x-radiation to localize electronic and structural changes in complex molecular structures with the time-resolution of ultrafast lasers. We can thus follow light induced excitation and optimize charge transfer pathways.

The current research focus lays on intra and inter-structure charge transfer reactions. These can occure in Molecules or in nano-dimensioned light absorbing particles such as nanowires.

Current directions are:

  • Photo-electro-catalysis transfer  
  • Molecular charge transfer 


As this is a challenging topic the groups also works on creating methods and facilities to enable these measurements:

Methods available in the group (inhouse):

X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (XAS) 
X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES)
Transient optical absorption spectroscopy (TAS)

Methods that the groups uses and that are available at large scale facilities:
X-ray diffuse scatter (XDS)
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS)
