In the nanomaterials & imaging lab, we investigate and develop the next-generation high-performance nanomaterials. Such materials will be low-cost to produce, yet very versatile and multi-functional.

Principal Investigator of the Group is Prof. Hannes Schniepp



Aug 2014 Prof. Schniepp joins the Department of Materials Science (D-MATL) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland, for one year as a guest professor, hosted by Prof. André Studart.
May 2014 Prof. Schniepp is the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award from the U. S. National Science Foundation (award #DMR-1352542) . The award will provide a total of $450,000 over 5 years to investigate the ribbon silk of the loxosceles spider.
