Properties of nanomaterials made from misfit-layered compounds revealed by electron microscopy and simulations

Project description

Nanomaterials from misfit layered compounds under study

Misfit layered compounds is a relatively new class of nanomaterials that consist of molecular slabs with different chemical compositions and periodicities that are stacked in an alternating manner. The EU-funded PROMISES project will integrate experimental and theoretical work to extract more information about the structure and (opto)electronic properties of these nanomaterials. In particular, it will combine high-resolution electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and cathodoluminescence imaging. The advanced characterisation methods will produce valuable data that will serve as input for ab initio simulations of this class of nanomaterials.
