INEX is a microsystems and nanotechnology R&D, commercialisation and manufacturing organisation.
The Computational Nanoscience Group at Nottingham, headed by Dr. Elena Bichoutskaia, is a home to theoretical and computational scientists who are interested in nanoscale phenomena. The group works on the development of modelling approaches to a wide range of problems in condensed matter and materials science. Focus of their current research is on the behaviour, properties and manipulation of carbon nanomaterials and low dimensional systems.
The degree follows the same syllabus as the BSc Physics programme with an introduction to nanoscience and other cutting-edge research provided by the Frontiers in Physics module. In year two you will again pursue the same core as for the BSc Physics course but will also take the Force and Function at the Nanoscale, and Molecular Bio- and Nanophysics modules (which replace two of the optional modules of the core course).
The group's research focuses on chemistry of carbon nanotubes and fullerenes and development of applications for these materials. Directed assembly of functional networks from nanoscopic building blocks (nanotubes, nanoparticles, macromolecules) is at the center of the experimental activities.
'Bottom up' approaches to nanotechnology, scanning probe microscopes, properties of fullerenes and derivatives.
The Centre is the hub for the University of Nottingham's Nanoscience postgraduate Masters programme.

This innovative taught, 1-year fulltime higher degree course aims to train a new generation of scientists and engineers in the emerging field of Nanoscience.
Current research topics include Chemical and Physical Properties of Colloidal or Nanoscale Metals; Hydrogen Storage in Solids; Transparent Conducting Metals; Thin Film Materials.
The group is based in the Department of Materials and studies the three main forms of sp2 carbon nanomaterials: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Graphene. Their interest is in developing nanostructures with unique quantum properties that have potential in electronic, photonic, and spin-based technologies.
