Projects per year
We use simple and inexpensive methods, especially electrochemical deposition (electrodeposition), to prepare ultrathin films and nanostructures with unique physical properties. We also study the surface physics aspects of electrodeposition, for example to study the origin and evolution of surface roughness.
We are interested in magnetic systems, for example studying interactions between magnetic nanoparticles, and electron transport in devices combining magnetic materials and adsorbed organic molecules.
In addition we carry out experimental studies of ice nucleation.
