 +===== The Group Takes a  Hike  ======
 +
 +2018-July-09
 +{{  :surface:news:img_9574.jpg?150|At Schneeberg}}
 +  * Now it is seriously a tradition: for our 5th Annual Group Outing we take public transport to [[http://www.puchberg-schneeberg.at/en|Puchberg/Schneeberg]] and hike up to the [[http://www.edelweisshuette.at|Edelweisshütte]].  After a hearty lunch, some more hiking, and a relaxed coffee break, we return to Vienna: full of fresh air, tired, yet with a feeling of great accomplishment.  Once again, Michael proofed to be a most fabulous tour guide.

 +===== Building Bridges with Water Molecules ======
 +
 +2018-June-27
 +{{  :surface:news:aecpnfbakpmfkgdi.png?300|Water, water everywhere!}}
 +  * Our paper about water adsorption on Fe3O4(001) has been published in PNAS. We are particularly proud of this work it was a very complex problem and it took the best of our capabilities in imaging, spectroscopy and theory to unravel. In the picture you see on of the structures formed in which water molecules adsorb on the surface Fe cations, with additional molecules bridging the gaps in a periodic fashion.  Congratulations to all involved!
 +
 +The paper can be found here: //“Water agglomerates on Fe3O4(001)”//[[http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2018/06/01/1801661115/tab-article-info|PNAS (2018)]]
 +
 +and the usual brilliant write up from Florian Aigner here: ////[[https://www.tuwien.ac.at/aktuelles/news_detail/article/126038/|TU Webpage article]].
 +It was picked up by news media [[https://derstandard.at/2000082242390/Wiener-Physiker-beobachten-Wassermolekuele-beim-Brueckenbauen|der Standard]], [[https://www.news.at/a/wiener-physiker-schauen-wassermolekuelen-beim-brueckenbauen-zu-10160399|apa]]
