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, Nicandro Bovenzi, Maxim Breitkreiz, Nikolay Gnezdilov, Jimmy Hutasoit, Marco Marciani, Thomas O'Brien, Slava Ostroukh, Mark Steudtner, 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.
We regularly have openings for Ph.D. students and postdocs. Contact Carlo Beenakker for more info.
