This area studies physical phenomena and new states of matter that are associated with the reduction of the size of materials to the region of 1 to 100 nm, as well as the presence of surfaces and low dimensionality effects.
DESCRIPTION: Atom-by-atom structural control of materials in order to induce and exploit new functional properties. The design of low-dimensional nanostructures is carried out using bottom-up physicochemical techniques such as atomic manipulation or the self-assembly of molecular precursors.
DESCRIPTION: This line is focused on understanding and controlling the properties of electromagnetic fields strongly confined in nanosystems, such as nanoparticles, waveguides, atomic width surfaces and materials, among others.
For 20 years the ICMA has carried out research in Nanophotonics Theory and in the INA, the experimental activity in this area dates back more than 15 years. The research carried out includes:
INMA has maintained a national and international leadership position, as evidenced by its participation in the Graphene Flagship Project, within the Optoelectronics and Industrialization work packages, collaboration with leading experimental groups and highly cited works.
