NANOTAIL: Hybrid nanocrystals exhibiting advanced and tailored properties
The Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser at FORTH is the coordinator of the Marie Curie Host Fellowship for Transfer of Knowledge (ToK) program NANOTAIL, "Hybrid nanocrystals exhibiting advanced and tailored properties".
This project is funded (2006-10) by the European Commission through the 6th Framework Programme concerning “Structuring the European Research Area - Human Resources and Mobility”.
The overall objective of the NANOTAIL is to design and develop new multi-functional nanocrystals, to understand their formation, their assembly and their properties. Recruited Fellows, who engage in the synthesis and characterization of complex, electronically active, solution-grown nanostructures should bring forward knowledge in the area of nanoscale complex matter, which could address modern technologies, ranging from magneto-optical data recording to biological sensing/labeling.
Except the strong intra-Institutional complementarities, exploiting the capabilities of the Ultraviolet Laser Facility at FORTH, the project aims to further the skills of the Fellows via cooperation with European Partner Institutes at:
