Alloy nanoparticles (also known as nanoalloys) are multicomponent metallic particles in the 1-100 nm diameter range. Nanoalloys present very complex structures and properties, which crucially depend on their size, composition and chemical ordering, and which can therefore be tailored for specific and industrially relevant applications - as in data storage, optical devices and catalysis.
Controlling and tailoring the properties of nanoalloys, and determining their phase diagrams, require the concerted effort of experiment and computer modelling. NANOALLOY brings together European experimental and theory/modelling research groups from universities and other research institutions to develop new methodologies for the growth, synthesis and characterization of nanoalloys, leading to new applications and materials.
