Research in the Department of Materials and Interfaces is focused in three central areas:
- Functional Materials and Interfaces
- Nano Science
- Soft- and Bio-Materials
The Department of Materials and Interfaces of the Weizmann Institute of Science is an interdisciplinary scientific unit composed of chemists, (bio) physicists, and (bio)materials researchers. A common theme of much of the research done in the department is the design of materials from elementary units with unique, pre-designed functionality. A complementary effort involves the understanding of the functionality of various materials, based on their supra-molecular or, in the case of non-molecular materials, collective architecture.
