Nano and Molecular Systems Research Unit

Nano and Molecular Systems Research Unit (NANOMO) is a dynamic collective of researchers and students with wide range of research topics from atmospheric research to functional nanomaterial and biomedical physics. With its wide its international collaborative network and unique know-how on synchrotron radiation NANOMO has been successful in contributing to science by publishing tens of peer-reviewed publications in recognized journals every year.

The unit strongly contributes to teaching by providing majority of physics education outcome at the University of Oulu and radiation safety training. In addition, the unit is involved in education about climate change through the Climate University project and collaboration with high schools.

The research is supported by European Union ERC and Horizon2020 programs, Academy of Finland, China Scholarship council and various domestic and international foundations and funds.


NANOMO staff provides a number of courses at all levels within the physics degree program. The unit especially gives teaching in the following specializations

  • Molecular and materials physics
  • Biomedical physics
  • Theoretical physics
