Centre for Nanostructured Media (CNM)

      Organisation profile

      Our research is targeted at two complementary themes; nanoscale functional materials and devices and nanophotonics and plasmonics. The two themes exhibit significant complementarities. All international strategies and roadmaps foresee an increasing role for advanced functional materials and optics and optical excitations particularly in ever diminishing dimensions. Being able to combine our established strengths in both themes places us in a unique position in UK and beyond. Both these themes encompass and cover our expertise in underlying science and materials for next generation data storage and information processing technologies.
