Nanoscale Science and Technology

Significant developments in the field of molecular physics, as well as technological advances, has widened the potential for experimentation and applications at the nanoscale.

Our understanding of phenomena at the nanoscale has developed by leaps and bounds in recent years, making nanoscale science and technology one of the most popular and exciting areas of modern research physics.

As a result of the wider research community in this area being so active, a number of new technologies and applications have already been developed based on research and testing at the nano-length scale. Some of these innovations are having a profound impact on our everyday lives.

The full potential of these applications and their impact on our lives has not yet been realised and there are still many unanswered questions about fundamental science at the nanoscale and a range of possible avenues for this area of physics to go down.

The aim of our research group is to help answer these questions and contribute to discovering the full range of applications for nanoscale science and technology, by placing ourselves at the forefront of the subject area.

Current research activity across our research group is varied and focused on the real-world impact of our research. We also support the active postgraduate research community in the School of Physics and Astronomy.
