At the Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science, chemistry and physics meet to study the properties of materials at the nanoscale. We specifically focus on three themes: catalysis, colloids 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).
