The basic research in the
Department for Nanostructured Materials focuses on inorganic
materials with specific physical properties that are a
consequence of their structural and chemical phenomena at the nanostructural and atomic levels. The fields of research
involve natural and manufactured
as well as
and intermetallic compounds. The basis of the research is
to find relationships between the physical properties of a
material and its structural and chemical properties by using
techniques to reveal phenomena on the nanoscale.
Macroscopic phenomena, for example, phase transformations,
phase equilibria, polytypisim, polymorphism, crystal growth
and the development of the microstructure are areas of
Apart from the basic
research, activities are also focused on:
- postgradual education,
- applied research,
- services for external partners.
