Materials Design

How far can we push the design and tailoring of materials properties for new applications? This ultimately depends on the control of atomic constituents while composing and structuring a material.

To explore the range of attainable properties, we need to increase the fundamental understanding of the synthesis process and reactions in the material on an atomistic level. Our research is therefore a stimulating mix of fundamental physics and application inspired research, including material synthesis process development, plasma analysis, materials synthesis and characterization, and theory and modelling.

The focus is on thin films, i.e. a thin layer of material deposited onto a surface to achieve properties that can not be attained by the surface material alone. Our goal is to enable design of thin films such that they can be applied for specific applications, and to control for example hardness, conductivity, transparency, magnetism, and ability to withstand heat and wear.

We are currently a team of 12 people using an interdisciplinary approach to find optimal solutions for novel materials design.
