Chair of Physics

The Chair of Physics has a long research tradition in the fields of nanostructured functional materials, surface science, and electrical transport in semiconductors. Examples of actual core research topics include nanoporous materials for energy storage, surface nanostructures and two-dimensional electronics . The key competences are in advanced experimental nanostructure characterization (X-ray and neutron scattering, scanning probe microscopy) and fabrication (nanoporous carbons, 2D heterostacks, and organic nanostructures). Members of the Institute regularly conduct experiments at international large-scale research facilities for synchrotron radiation or neutrons.
