Materials and Nanoscience

Nanoscience and Materials combines principles from chemistry, physics and engineering towards understanding how the structure and composition of solid materials determines their properties and function. This is achieved through development of new synthetic approaches, analytical methods and device engineering. Furthermore, in the nanoscale, the size of solids strongly affects materials properties, thus, the effect of size and dimensionally on material properties is the main premise of nanoscience. Together, these scientific fields are highly important for the development of new technologies ranging from lubrication to electronics.
