The research group Physics of Nanostructured Materials is part of the research focus Complex Nanoscale Matter of the Faculty of Physics. The group studies the fundamental physics of novel materials under dimensional constraints as well as novel low-dimensional materials. This includes investigations of their formation, structural evolution and of the physics of their unique properties. Multiscale phenomena of metals, alloys and polymers with micro/nanocrystalline structures, as well as carbon nanostructures including graphene membranes are in the focus of research. The research group comprehensively tackles structure-property relationships, physical mechanisms of complex defect configurations and their interactions. Systems far from thermodynamic equilibrium including micro/nanocrystalline, disordered and glassy structures are investigated. The four research focuses of the group are Complex Systems and Hybrid Materials, Electron Microscopy, Micromaterials and Nanocrystalline Materials.
General audience articles of D. Setman and F. Spieckermann published in FAZ and Irish Times.
We congratulate Christoph Gammer on the successful disputation of his thesis.
