Kotakoski group

The Kotakoski research group, Disorder in Materials belongs to the unit Physics of Nanostructured Materials, which in turn is part of the research focus Complex Nanoscale Matter of the Faculty of Physics. Our research concentrates on intentionally created disorder in low-dimensional materials and its manifestation in the atomic structure and macroscopic properties. The group is lead by Prof. Jani Kotakoski, who joined the Faculty on a Tenure Track position on Experimental complex nanoscale matter/Condensed matter physics in September 2015.

We are part of the Doctoral College Advanced Functional Materials and the Vienna Doctoral School of Physics.
