Nanomaterials and advanced nanostructures (NanoMAT)

The activity and expertise of the NanoMAT Team are centred on the chemical synthesis and crystal growth of low-dimensional materials (i.e. ultra-thin films, 2D and nano-lamellar materials, nanowires, nanostructures, …) and of related heterostructures, by focusing on fundamental studies aiming at thoroughly elucidating nucleation and growth mechanisms at work as well as highlighting and controlling their properties on the nanometric local and macroscopic scales.

Axes Thématiques

Our investigation is organised in 5 subjects:

Ion transport and resistive switching in oxide systems

  • Perovskite and layered perovskite-related oxides
  • Thin films growth by Metal Organic Chemical Vapour Deposition
  • Valence change resistive switching in oxide heterostructures
  • Structural, physico-chemical & functional properties in memristive devices
