Welcome to Physics of Interfaces and Nanomaterials






The PIN-group is led by Prof. Harold Zandvliet and the research field involves controlled preparation and understanding of interfaces, low-dimensional (nano)structures and nanomaterials. We focus on systems that (1) rely on state-of-the art applications or (2) can potentially lead to future applications.

March 26 - Cover Nanotechnology

An image taken from our article “Controlling the morphology of multi-branched gold nanoparticles” has appeared on the cover of the March 26th, 2010 issue of the renowned journal Nanotechnology.

In the cover article we demonstrate a simple and versatile way to achieve high yield synthesis of shape- and size-controlled multi-branched gold nanoparticles, also often referred to as “nanostars”. ... read more
