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.
