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.
