Nano Group at the University of Leicester

Welcome to the NanoLab website


Welcome to the homepage of the NanoLab at the University of Leicester!


We exploit experimental techniques to make and to probe nanoscale objects. The breadth of our research activities is broad and ranges from the study of highly reactive molecular complexes using laser spectroscopy to the synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles. Common to all of our work is the development and use of cutting edge techniques in the laboratory.
