Women SHAPING Knowledge: Jasmin-Clara Bürger

“If you change just one parameter, the result looks completely different.”

Jasmin-Clara Bürger, a postdoc since 2023, opens a drawer at the Institute of Microsystems Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering in Freiburg. A box emerges, in which plates, Bürger’s samples, lie neatly sorted next to each other. One of the samples catches the eye, it is green, the top left corner is colored purple, which looks really nice. But this is not about the aesthetic value of any colorful plates. Bürger is currently researching so-called thin-films, i.e. layers of material with a thickness in the nanometer range. This means that the materials Bürger is working with have a size of one billionth of a meter, 100 times finer than a human hair. The color of the samples in the laboratory changes depending on the thickness of the thin-film. But what makes these materials so special?
