Materials & Manufacturing

The physical basis for nanomaterials research.

We develop the structures that constitute the physical basis for all nanomaterials research, as well as for future nanotechnology and industrial production. We explore both physical and chemical synthesis methods for generating nanoparticles, nanowires, and nano-layers. We further aim to relate atomic structure and properties of materials and understand when and how nanostructures form.
