Nanostructured materials (NANOS)
Research in nanostructured materials is one of the fastest growing fields in science. This is because e.g. electronic components are designed with ever smaller dimensions, and because many properties of materials change dramatically when the dimensions approach nanometer size. Thus, it is possible to produce new components, which function according to new principles.
Research in this field is a necessity for the participation in the development of the new technology of the next decades.
In NANOS we focus on a number of projects that are related to phenomena occuring at the nanometer scale. Special emphasis is laid on studies of phenomena at interfaces between materials with dimensions in the nanometer range...
