The Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology Research Group focuses on engineering and fabrication from the micro-scale down to the nanometre scale to produce a wide range of novel devices, materials and integrated systems.

This includes the creation and characterisation of nano-electronic systems and the study of bio-inspired devices, which borrows evolutionary solutions from the natural world and applies them in the design and creation of emerging technologies. Current research topics include functional materials and nanophotonics, spintronics, quantum and memristive devices, Lab-on-a-Chip, and MEMS/NEMS devices.

Our research has four main themes:

The Nano Group is part of the Zepler Institute, which manages the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre, a state-of-the-art clean room which provides a flexible capability for a wide range of nano- and bio-nano technologies. 

Head of group: Professor Martin Charlton
