The ability to work and “engineer” with matter at the nanoscale guided by rational scientific principles enables unprecedented control of heat, mass and charge transport, paving the way to radically new technologies. Notably, nanoscale design links diverse processes across multiple scales in time and space and transforms traditional approaches to transport engineering and thermal management.
The Laboratory of Nanoscience for Energy Technologies (LNET) aims at exploring innovative mechanisms and concepts for light harvesting, conversion and storage by exploiting non-equilibrium (ballistic) transport processes and by leveraging on strong light/solid/liquid coupling at the nanoscale. In particular, research at LNET will strive to develop integrated nanophotonic systems enabling nano-scale control over individual chemical interactions as well as mass-transport processes, in order to provide new solutions to pressing technological and societal problems such as renewable energy storage (i.e. solar fuels) and water filtration/desalination.
