Erik Bakkers is at the forefront of R&D into new nanomaterials that do not occur in nature and can only be produced by manipulating nanoscale particles. He conducts basic research on crystal growth while keeping a sharp eye on real-world applications. For example, he is developing unique crystal growth methods in which he assembles atomically precise semiconductor nanowires with special properties. His material and structural combinations are the building blocks for new types of solar cells, light transmitters and quantum computer components.
