NAnostructures and FUnctional MAterials (NAFUMA)

The research group NAnostructures and FUnctional MAterials (NAFUMA) conducts research in basic inorganic chemistry, solid state chemistry and materials/nano science.

NAFUMA focuses on inorganic functional materials and nanostructures. The main objective is to understand their physical properties on the basis of crystal structure and chemical bonding (electronic structure) and on this background be able to synthesize novel materials with specific properties by design. This implies close integration of experimental and theoretical modeling activities.
