MaNEP - Materials with Novel Electronic Properties
The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR), MaNEP - Materials with Novel Electronic Properties, studies materials with outstanding properties. These materials are featured in some magnetic, ferroelectric and super conductors. All have a large potential for applications, particularly in energy production and distribution, information technology, sensors and nanotechnology. As electronic interactions play an important role in many of these materials, it is difficult to describe their properties theoretically. The work of the NCCR MaNEP researchers aims at achieving a better understanding of these new materials and at preparing for future applications. Academic and industry partners cooperate closely towards this end, within the NCCR’s Swiss-wide network.
