Nanoscale Physics and Technology Group

This is an IOP special interest group, which is a community of IOP members focused on a particular discipline, application or area of interest. 

Special interest groups allow members to connect and share knowledge and ideas. The IOP funds groups to deliver a range of activities including events, prizes and bursaries. All of our groups are driven by members.  

About the group

As a special interest, member-driven group, we are interested in nanotechnology and nanoscale structures related to:

  • physics
  • research
  • technology
  • applications
  • public awareness

We highlight the role of physics in nanoscale science and nanotechnology.

What the group does

We serve and support members of the IOP with an interest in the physics of 0.1-100 nm structures and the development of these structures for new technologies.
