Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science


At the Debye Institute for Nanomaterial(s) Science, chemistry and physics meet to study the properties of materials at the nanoscale. We specifically focus on three themes: Catalysis, Colloid Science and Nanophotonics.
The institute is named in honour of a true pioneer of the physical chemistry / chemical physics field: Dutch scientist and Nobel laureate Peter Debye (1884-1966).
