The section Fundamental Aspects of Materials and Energy, FAME, performs research on functional and structural materials aimed at practical applications. The focus is on the study of the relations between structure, dynamics and function at the atomic and nanoscale. For this we use neutrons, positrons, X-rays, NMR, muons, Mossbauer spectroscopy and first principles modeling, at both local (RID) and international facilities. The FAME section collaborates closely with the NPM2 section and with the Casimir Research School.
