Welcome to the Bartl research group!



The Bartl group is interested in developing and characterizing materials that have novel optical, electronic, and magnetic properties. Our motto is Functional Materials by Structural Design, and we seek to understand and selectively use interactions at the molecular and supermolecular levels to create new functional hierarchical materials.

Our scientific activities integrate research, teaching and educational outreach in physical and materials chemistry to address one of the greatest technology challenges of our time: The precise control, manipulation and use of energy and information (electrons, photons and magnons) at nano-to-micrometer length scales.
