Physics of Nanostructured Materials studies the fundamental physics of novel materials under dimensional constraints, low-dimensional materials and quantum systems embedded in solid state matrices. The research 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 2D materials and other low-dimensional systems 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 also investigated. Physics of Nanostructured Materials is one of many research units at the University of Vienna's Faculty of Physics.
