Research Lines

The Nanomaterials group is led by Dr. Mato Knez. The activity of the Nanomaterials group is focused on the synthesis and functionalization of materials. Its research programme has been divided into thin-film coating, hybrid inorganic-organic materials, and bio-organic nanomaterials.

Nanomaterials Equipment

Experimental work in the Nanomaterials group is performed by means of equipment specially dedicated to our research lines. The group has also access to nanoGUNE's common facilities and equipment, including a cleanroom of nearly 300 m2 and the Electron-Microscopy Laboratory.

  • Review: Interface nano-optics with van der Waals polaritons

    An international team, including the leader of the Nanooptics group at nanoGUNE, Rainer Hillenbrand, discusses in ‘Nature’  the state-of-the-art and opportunities for controlling the propagation of nanolight (in form of polaritons) in van der Waals materials with the help of classical refractive optics concepts,…Read more
