R&I Emerging Materials

R&I Emerging Materials is led by Ermin Malic, who is also the coordinator of this Vinnova competence center. 

Ermin will be supported by Mikael Fogelström, an expert in modeling of transport properties of nanomaterials, Timur Shegai and Saroj Dash, experts in optical spectroscopy and quantum transport characterization of 2D materials, and Floriana Lombardi with expertise on topological 2D materials. 

The key infrastructure at Chalmers includes access to the supercomputers, optical spectroscopy (photoluminescence, absorption, Raman, pump-probe) as well as electronic, spintronic, quantum and magneto-transport measurements. 

The focus of this R&I line lies on uncovering unforeseen material functionalities and providing novel materials and technological concepts for the other three R&Is. 

In phase 1 of the center, we will perform research on

  • Nanopatterned 2D materials with atomically sharp edges
  • 2D Materials heterostructure-based electronic devicesns
  • Nove exciton-based devices
  • Novel thermoelectric materials
