About Us

Functional nanostructures are the enabling basis for today’s and tomorrow’s nanotechnology. Our research group focuses on how to improve functional nanostructures in a wide array of applications, ranging from semiconductor nano-manufacturing to energy and clean water production. We combine research in polymer systems, block copolymer self-assembly, and inorganic materials growth inside polymers together with advanced characterizations technique such as TEM imaging, 3D characterization with TEM tomography, and X-ray scattering to understand and control the next generation of functional nanostructures.
