Nanoclusters and Nanostructured Materials (NNM) group
Materials are increasingly being studied and exploited at scales of only a few 10s or 100s of atoms. Such nanoscale materials often display novel size-dependent properties compared to materials at everyday length scales. Using atomistic and quantum mechanical modelling methods, we aim to obtain a detailed predictive understanding of the structural, electronic and chemical properties of nanomaterials. Our main interests concern how nanomaterials evolve with size and dimensionality, and the design of new materials using nanoscale/molecular building blocks.
