Focus Area ATUMS

Alberta/Technical University of Munich International Graduate School "Functional Hybrid Materials" (IRTG 2022)

Semiconductor nanoparticles and conductive polymers are ranked among the great scientific triumphs of the late 20th century. In the Alberta/TUM International Graduate School (ATUMS) they are married to hybrid functional materials (HFMs), which are among the most promising systems available to address current and future needs of society. They are expected to revolutionize solar energy conversion, energy storage, low cost efficient electronics, and optical communication, among others.

ATUMS doctoral researchers are IGSSE members.
