Physics of three-dimensional Nanomaterials

Controlling materials on the nanoscale plays a key role in our society. For instance, nanomaterials have given rise to a multitude of computing and sensing devices, ubiquitous in our daily life. However, current devices are reaching their fundamental limits for storage and processing, and they are not energetically efficient for emergent technologies, such as artificial intelligence. For these reasons, the development of radically new nanomaterials and devices better suited for the huge demands of modern society, are needed.

In our research area, we investigate 3D nanomaterials to overcome these major issues. In particular, we investigate 3D magnetic systems, which are very promising to create future green computing technologies. Our research comprises multiple areas, including the invention of new methods for the fabrication and optical characterisation of 3D nanomaterials, exploitation of novel forms of X-ray and electron microscopy, and the discovery of new physical phenomena driven by the combination of interfacial effects in multi-layered systems and geometrical effects at the nanoscale.
