  Vitaly Kresin, Ph.D. - Professor

Post-docs/Research Staff
  Experimental Condensed Matter Physics
Vitaly Kresin carries out experimental and theoretical research of nanoclusters - agglomerates of a finite number of atoms (from a few to thousands) which are bigger than a molecule but smaller than a piece of bulk matter. The gradual development of various bulk characteristics can be studied as a function of size, and quantum effects unique to finite systems can be observed. Work in this field allows for considerable interaction with solid-state, atomic, chemical, and even nuclear physics, and has practical implications for surface science, nanoelectronics, catalysis or environmental studies.
