Directed 3D nanofabrication with electrochemical scanning probes (D3N)

Electrochemistry uses electricity to trigger controlled chemical reactions. Although a widely used technique, we know little about what happens locally, at the nanometer scale. Using a combination of electrochemistry, optics and scanning probe techniques, we will reveal the local physical and chemical processes. We will use the outcomes to develop a new 3D nanofabrication technology which uses nanoelectrochemistry to create complex structures in a 3D-printing fashion with nanoscale resolution. We will pursue materials relevant for solar energy harvesting and conversion, where complex architectures enable conversion efficiencies beyond those possible with bulk material. D3N will pioneer controlled nanoelectrochemistry as the ultimate 3D manufacturing technology of functional materials with nanoscale resolution.
