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.
Teaching duties of the Chair include basic physics courses for all Bachelor study programs and advanced courses on materials for electronics and physics of functional materials for Bachelor and Master programs in Materials Science .




ERC Starting Grant for Dr. Aleksandar Matkovic

Dr. Aleksandar Matkovic is one of this years awardees of a prestigious Starting grant issued by the European Research Council. Via this grant, Dr Matkovic and his research team work on novel functional 2D insulators, and interfaces for neuromorphic computing.
