Experimental Condensed Matter Physics – ECM

UA-ECM’s world-class expertise is pivotal to ensure the success of the tasks for the design and characterisation of organic non-linear optics molecules and single wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) based nanohybrid building blocks, which will be incorporated into polymer materials as active second harmonic generation component in optical fibres. UA-ECM will also develop separation methods for single-chirality SWCNTs, which are matched to the wavelengths used for fibre-based optical sensing. The group will essentially contribute to all tasks pertaining to the research and implementation of SWCNTs in CHARMING.
