Nanomaterials and Nanocatalysis
Dominated by surfaces and interfaces, nanomaterials often display surprising physical, electronic, or mechanical properties.
At the INT we not only produce nanomaterials and explore their properties, but also develop techniques for influencing their properties. This is done through external stimulus after the materials are produced and deposited, tremendously extending their functionality. We also work on the development and understanding of catalysts based on metallic nanoparticles.
