The breakdown of classical laws at Nanoscale presents both challenges & opportunities.
Join us in unveiling the atomic origins of such exotic phenomena emerging at the nanoscale poised to fuel future and emerging technologies. To meet this challenge, we rely on advanced modelling techniques (MD, DFT, …) combined with theory development to reason varied exotic phenomena emerging at nanoscale, namely:
Position #1: Violation of the classical laws of heat transport at the nanoscale;
Position #2: Manipulation of molecular charge states in emerging nano-architectures (e.g. molecular machines).
Position #3: Thanks to a surprising violation of the 1st law of friction we propose to control superlubricity (a state of vanishing friction) in an unprecedented manner.
Applications open until a suitable candidate is found.
