The overarching field of the centre is nanotechnology with special emphasis on thin films, device development from organic molecules, nanofabrication and nanophotonics.
Our main research area is the understanding of electric and photonic/plasmonic interfaces for new energy generating and energy efficient devices. We focus on scalable devices for renewable energy and energy efficiency, organic nanophotonics, and nanostructures.

Bronchitis medicine shows promise as COVID-19 medicament
After having virtually screened 640 existing medicinal products, researchers from Uppsala University and SDU found that the substance PC786 actively hits several SARS-CoV-2 receptors and thus turns out to be a candidate in the fight against COVID-19. The medicine clearly stands out from the others.

Villum Experiment millions for nano research at MCI
The researchers Jacek Fiutowski and Shailesh Kumar from the Mads Clausen Institute (MCI) at SDU both receive a shade under two million kroner from Villum Fonden in connection with the Villum Experiment programme. Their research can get a large impact on the IT-security and quantum computers of the future, respectively, as well as on new possibilities within, e.g. cancer treatment.

Researchers discover superconductor with unexpected lattice configuration
An international team has discovered that compressing monocrystalline (TaSe4)2I can create a quasi-1D system where the constituent TaSe4 atomic chains are in amorphous state without breaking the orientational and periodic translation symmetries of the chain lattice.
