Our research focuses on nano and mesoscopic physics, with a goal to characterize materials between the atomic and the macroscopic scale, and enable their novel functionalities.
We also have extensive experience in hosting joint PhD students and are therefore inviting visiting PhD students and postdoctoral researchers from China, Brazil, Iran (alternative), Colombia or other countries that provide visiting scholarships.
