Solid state physics and semiconducting materials are central areas in Solid State Physics. Researchers can make semiconductor structures by controlling individual atoms, and can study their physical and electronic properties. Matters of current interest include quantum physical phenomena in nanostructures, and the development of nano-electronics and biosensors. The main areas of application are nano-electronics, nano-optics and biomedicine.
