  • History and Objectives
This research team was set up in 2016. Its main objectives focus on engineering of advanced nanomaterials for energy and environment applications, with the following general concept : mimics the structure and function of natural systems to create man−made systems for light-to-electricity or light-to-chemicals conversion (vice versa) and for environment depollution.
Concepts: Functional materials designed via mimicking natural systems
In our Laboratory for NanoEngineering and NanoSciences (NENS) we focus on advanced nanomaterials for energy and environment applications. The general concept is to mimics the structure and function of natural systems to create man−made systems (also called artificial systems) for light-to-electricity or light-to-chemicals conversion (vice versa) and for environment depollution.
Our current activities are structured into two research axes which are projected to be developed as two independent research teams in the near future (two to three years time). These two axes are:
Axe 1: Materials for Energy Conversion (MEC)
Axe 2: Materials for Environment Application (MEA)
  • Location
NENS is located on the 5th floor of USTH main building, on VAST Campus.
