TeamNanoTech (University of Vigo)
The research activity of TeamNanoTech is focused on the design and synthesis of nanomaterials towards the development of novel applications as well as their implementation on devices. The materials that are under the scope of TNT are mainly metal, semiconductor, magnetic and hybrid nanoparticles with controlled composition, multifunctional nanocomposites, functionalized carbon nanotubes as well as carbon nanotube/inorganic hybrid materials. Optical characterization of nanoparticles and their assemblies are also among the interest of the group.
