National Institute Of Materials Physics - Romania

Nanoscale Condensed Matter Laboratory


The research activity of the Laboratory of Low Dimensional Systems is basic, oriented and applicative, focused on both experimental and theoretical aspects. Several kinds of nanostructured materials, such as semiconductor nanostructures and nanocomposites, magnetic thin and ultra thin films, biocompatible materials, hard coatings, materials with sensor properties, are prepared by different methods. The experimental investigation topics are directed towards different properties and processes specific to low dimensional systems and supported by modeling: composition and structure, electrical transport and phototransport, magnetic, optical, and sensor properties, surface/interfaces processes, trapping phenomena. Theoretical studies aim to electronic transport in mesoscopic systems, spin dynamics, and quantum confinement effects.

The Laboratory also performs the training of graduate, MSc and PhD students as well as Post Doc specialization.
