Research

Our interdisciplinary team gathers physicists, materials scientists, (bio-) chemists, and engineers. We are interested in understanding the fundamental electronic, optoelectronic, thermal and ionic transport processes involved in atomically-precise nanostructures and low-dimensional materials. To fabricate our structures and devices, we pioneer the heterogeneous integration of novel nanomaterials by mastering custom-made methods for nanoscale patterning and interfaces nanostructuring. We strive to master the whole competence chain from designer materials with tailored quantum properties to their application in information technology, energy conversion as well as quantum and biochemical sensing.
