NANOSAM has been initiated as a competence centre within a structure of the Marian Smoluchowski Institute of Physics which belongs to the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, the oldest educational and research institution in Central and Ea stern Europe.
The nanotechnology laboratory is working on development, understanding and application of one of the most important surface investigation technique: Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) in UHV, and on application Molecular Beam Evaporation (MBE) for insulator/semoconductor and metal/insulator thin films.
The scientific activity of the NANOSAM Centre research groups is concerned with various aspects of modern materials science and its theoretical aspects, as well as properties of nanoscopic systems and nanometer-scale modification of materials.
The master's degree is the first step into graduate education. To enroll in a master's degree program, you'll need to have earned an undergraduate degree in a comparable field. All physics undergraduates who have completed their 3rd year of studies can enroll on this 4-term course after which they will receive Master degrees at both Polish and French Universities. The 2-year programme is available for individual students as well as groups.
