Four leading research and educational institutions in Europe propose a joint Erasmus Mundus Master Course entitled "Nanoscience and nanotechnology". The objective of this course is to provide top quality multidisciplinary education in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The institute of Condensed Matter and Nanosciences (IMCN) conducts multidisciplinary research at the intersection fields of materials (starting from the atomic and molecular levels), electronics and biology. The institute studies new chemistry and physics, exploiting novel principles in nanostructured devices with new functionalities. The research deals with the synthesis, design, handling, modelling and implementation of (bio)molecules, (bio)surfaces and solid materials. The functions, properties or reactivity of these novel (nano)structures are investigated and characterized by advanced techniques, or predicted by numerical simulations.
The research activities of the group are concerned with the development of probes and technologies to interface single small functional molecules for AFM-based single-molecule force spectroscopy.
The Master of Nanophysics programme (as such) will not be organised in the academic year 2010-2011. However, a number of English courses remain available to foreign students (e.g. within Erasmus program). Additionally, foreign students are welcome for internships and their M.Sc. thesis work at UA. Provided that more than 40 ECTS are collected and recognized by his/her home university, the student can obtain a bi-diploma.
The NanoLab centre of excellence consists of six research groups (EMAT, CMT, PLASMANT, AXES, DuEL, ENM) with complementary expertise in the field of nanoscience and nanomaterials. The research focuses around the themes of structural and chemical characterization by means of electron microscopy, computer simulations of the growth of nano structures formed in plasmas or by laser interaction, theoretical modulation of nano structures and the study of their optical, magnetic and superconducting properties.
The research activities of the group deal with the structural, electronic, and optical properties of novel organic materials, such as functional nanostructures, with promising characteristics in the field of electronics, photonics, and information technology.
Synthesis, characterization, transformation, processing, and applications of polymeric and composite (nano)materials.
