The theoretical nanophysics group, led by Carlo Beenakker [CV], addresses fundamental physical problems that occur when a macroscopic object is miniaturized to dimensions at the nanometer scale. Currently, the members of the group are Paul Baireuther, Denis Chevallier, Emilio Cobanera, Mathias Diez, Cosma Fulga, Bernard van Heck, Timo Hyart, Marco Marciani, Sean Mi, Dmitry Pikulin, and Brian Tarasinski.
For an up-to-date view of our current research interests, take a look at the preprints that have come out of our group in the last twelve months.
Here is an overview of completed Ph.D. theses, and here is a list of postdocs who have passed through our group.
Postdoctoral Fellowship starting in 2014, in collaboration with the experimental nanophysics group in Delft.
We also regularly have openings for Ph.D. students. Contact Carlo Beenakker for more info. (See also the graduate study FAQ.)
