Introduction / mission

It is fascinating how material properties at the nanoscale can be radically changed by controlling their dimensionality, size and crystal structure. Within the AND research group, we develop novel nanomaterials and devices based on such new nanomaterials. We aim to understand the physical phenomena that take place in these materials and devices. The group is part of the Eindhoven Hendrik Casimir Institute (EHCI), which brings together the world-class photonics and quantum research at TU/e to create a unique and optimal environment to enable these fields to grow synergetically.

Fascinating nanowires and exciting research areas

Organisation profile

We explore the unusual (quantum) properties of these new designer nanomaterials for future applications and to boost the performance of existing (opto)electronic devices. For example, topological surface states are predicted to carry dissipation-less currents and to be a precursor for new quantum states, 2D materials exhibit extraordinary ultrafast thermodynamic properties with great potential towards data communication and thermal management applications, and light-emitting SiGe will enable faster and more energy-efficient chips and connecting to distant quantum bits.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
