Susi research group

Nanomaterials and -technology

The Susi research group, Nanomaterials and -technology belongs to the unit Physics of Nanostructured Materials, which in turn is part of the research focus Complex Nanoscale Matter of the Faculty of Physics. The group is focused on understanding the effects of electron and ion irradiation on low-dimensional materials via closely coupled atomically resolved experiments and first principles modeling. Such knowledge enables the implantation of heteroatom impurities into the lattice, reveals their bonding by electron energy loss spectroscopy, and ultimately allows their manipulation with atomic precision using a focused electron beam. The group is lead by Finnish-born physicist and ERC Starting Prize grantee Toma Susi, who recently started on a Tenure Track position as Assistant Professor (from 1.3.2019).

We are part of the Vienna Doctoral School of Physics.
