DCAFM-Doctoral College Advanced Functional Materials

The Doctoral College Advanced Functional Materials (DCAFM) provides doctoral education at the highest international level on the synthesis, characterization, analysis and theoretical description of novel functional materials, ranging from low-dimensional materials with exotic electronic and optical properties to soft matter systems with tailored mechanical responses to external stimuli.

DCAFM is a topical college in the Vienna Doctoral School in Physics (VDSP).

The faculty of the DCAFM consists of members of the Faculties of Physics and Chemistry of the University of Vienna with complementary backgrounds in diverse fields of materials science. Currently, the college has about 50 doctoral fellows.
