The Group of Nanomaterials and Microsystems has established as its main research goal the synergy between basic research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with the technological development of new tools to prepare and characterize materials at the nanoscale.
The GNaM is one of the few groups in Europe working in nanocalorimetry of low dimensional systems and in the combinatorial synthesis and characterization of thin layers prepared by physical vapour deposition (PVD).
Our group has also a wide experience in the study of transformation kinetics associated to nucleation and growth processes. Simultaneously, the group has developed and patented a high throughput analysis methodology based on membrane-based microchips to the study of phase transformations in thin films. The innovative and efficient synergy between synthesis and thermal characterization tools has brought the GNaM to an international recognition in the area of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
