About the M2N research group

Welcome to the Molecular Materials and Nanosystems (M2N) research group. The M2N group is an interdepartmental research group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), active in the Departments of Applied Physics and Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. It brings together researchers from these two fields and aims at establishing a coherent research and educational program on the physics and chemistry of functional nanostructured organic and inorganic molecular materials and devices.
