AMOLF is one of five research institutes of the Dutch Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM). The current research at AMOLF focuses on three areas: Life science inspired physics, nanophysics and femtosecond dynamics of matter
The research projects concern especially the growth from sub-monolayers to several tens of monolayers and the formation of nanostructures. Moreover, this group supports other groups in the institute in producing thin films and sub-micron structures and conducts fundamental research in layer growth.
This joint AMOLF/Philips group focuses on two topics: 1) III-V semiconductor nanowires as building blocks for nanoscale optoelectronic devices. 2) Complex metallic structuctures for enhanced, polarized and directional emission of light sources coupled to surface plasmon polaritons and particle plasmons.
A world-class interdisciplinary place for applied research aiming at business creation in the field of microsystems and nanotechnologies, enabled by innovations in materials and processing methods, state-of-the-art cleanroom infrastructure and a full spectrum of characterization facilities.
