Welcome

To the Nottingham Nanoscience group website

The group is part of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nottingham, UK. Our research interests span a range of exciting and topical themes in state-of-the-art nanoscale science. Housed in a suite of recently refurbished laboratories containing an excellent equipment base, our core activities are focused on understanding and controlling the structure and behaviour of condensed matter on length scales ranging from the single molecule limit to micron dimensions.
