Nanosurf Joins the TOPOCOM Project to Provide Expert Training in Scanning Probe Microscopy

Nanosurf is proud to announce its participation in the TOPOCOM project

TOPOCOM LogoLiestal, 22 January 2024 – Nanosurf, a leading provider of high-precision nanotechnology solutions, is proud to announce its participation in the TOPOCOM project. The TOPOCOM project, standing for "Topological Solitons in Ferroics for Unconventional Computing" is a network of leading European groups from different disciplines and sectors selected to provide comprehensive training on the integrative concepts underlying the science of topological solitons in ferroic materials and their application in unconventional computing. It aims to explore and develop innovative materials through advanced research techniques. The project is assembling an international multidisciplinary team of 11 PhD candidates to spearhead the efforts.

Nanosurf will contribute its extensive expertise in scanning probe microscopy (SPM) to the project. The company's role will primarily involve providing comprehensive training on the basics of SPM, a critical tool in the analysis and understanding of material properties at the nanoscale. “I am very much looking forward to getting to know the high-performing students that will join this network. It will be an interesting time for them, as well as us”, commented Dr. Marcus Weth (Managing Director Nanosurf Germany), who represents Nanosurf in the consortium.

Nanosurf's involvement will ensure that researchers and scientists involved in the TOPOCOM project are well-equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively apply SPM techniques, a critical tool in the analysis and understanding of material properties, in their research.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie.
