Research Topics

The NFL group’s interests revolve around understanding the structure-function relationship in novel materials.

Our investigative methods range from fundamental atomistic-scale characterizations to device fabrication and testing. The research can be broken into the following themes:

Self-Assembly and polymerization at Surfaces and Interfaces (project leader: Oliver MacLean)

Advanced Nanomaterials for Solar Energy Conversion (project leader: Gurpreet Singh Selopal)

Functional Materials for Electronics and Photonics (project leader: Riad Nechache)

Nanotribology (project leader: Catalin Harnagea)
