Nicole Grobert's research group focuses on the synthesis, processing, and characterisation of novel carbon, boron nitride and other non-carbon based nanomaterials such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanofibres, nanorods, 2D nanomaterials, and multifunctional hierarchical nanostructures.
The Nanomaterials by Design research team develops new production processes and uses chemical vapour deposition, template routes, and wet-chemical techniques for the controlled manufacturing of nanomaterials. State-of-the-art in situ characterisation is critically important for elucidating the role of individual growth parameters for the controlled formation and the study of structure properties relationships of these new materials.
Close collaboration with a range of internationally leading industry partners plays a pivotal role for the implementation of tailored nanomaterials in end-user applications in the health-care or energy sectors.
