Low-dimensional materials and molecular nanostructures such as graphene and carbon nanotubes have fascinating properties and are of great interest to science and technology. We integrate such materials into complex device structures, carry out state-of-the-art experiments and explore the potential for electronic, optoelectronic, photonic, and sensory applications.

The research is carried out as part of a cooperation between the TU Darmstadt and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology with labs at the Institute of Nanotechnology and the Institute of Quantum Materials and Technologies, hosting advanced nanofabrication, characterization and simulation methods.

For students: Topics for bachelor, ARL, master thesis and student jobs available (jobs).
