Briefly about our research group

The Computational Nanoscience group at Nanoscience Center (NSC-comp) investigates physical and chemical properties of various nanosystems using computational techniques based on density functional theory and dynamical simulations.  Our main focus revolves around understanding the inherent properties of ligand-protected metal nanoparticles. We are actively involved in various other research topics as well, such as catalysis and characterisation of metal nanoparticle-bionanoparticle (virus) hybrids.  Our group interacts with several computational and experimental groups in Finland and around the world.
