From 0-D to 1-D and 2-D oxide nanostructures: fabrication and characterization

Oxide nanostructures in low dimensions on well-defined metal surfaces
form novel hybrid systems with tremendous potential and impact both for
fundamental research and in the emerging nanotechnologies. The focus of
this program is on the fabrication of two-, quasi-one-, and
quasi-zero-dimensional oxide nanostructure model systems suitable for
elucidation of their emergent properties in terms of geometric and
electronic structure, magnetism, and catalytic chemistry.

The particular project involves the deposition of oxide clusters from
the vapor phase onto single crystal metal surfaces and controlling their
self-assembly into 1-D nanowires and 2-D nanolayers.

The successful applicant is young and dynamic and:
-) should have a master’s degree in physics or chemistry or a PhD degree
with UHV surface science experience
-) will work with state-of-the-art surface science equipment (scanning
probe techniques, local and area averaged spectroscopies, diffraction
-) will be embedded into a top international research team
-) will be employed for 3 years (1+2 years contract for PostDocs)
-) will be paid according to the salaries set by the Austrian Science
Funds (FWF:

If you are interested in becoming part of the team (for PostDocs UHV
surface science experience required) please send your letter of
motivation and your CV to Univ. Prof. Dr. Falko P. Netzer (

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
