Our research in molecular nanoscience and materials science concentrates on understanding nano and material structures and their interaction. The primary goal here is to acquire control of their characteristics and properties, and from there to generate new functionalities and fields of application. Another focus is the development of new materials and their sustainable synthesis. Photovoltaics is affiliated with this field.
Nano and materials science have emerged from our Departments of Physics and Chemistry. In this field, technology transfer is especially significant, performed, in particular, by our Center for Applied Photonics and the Nano Centre Euregio Bodensee.
