NanoMatter

Multiscale Nanostructured Materials Group

Group Leader: Alberto Ferro

The group is focused on materials engineered so that multiple length scales are simultaneously explored.
The primary activity is centred on multiscale dispersions in bulk nanostructured materials tailored for functional and structural performance under extreme conditions.
An upstream interest is the production of nanoparticles and respective colloidal suspensions with application in information technology, biomedicine, catalysis and energy/environmental technologies.
In addition, phase transitions and the mechanical behaviour at pico/nano/micro scales are transversal interests of the NanoMatter members.
