Dr. Bernhard C. Bayer's research interests are synthesis, integration and characterisation of low-dimensional nanomaterials with a particular focus on two-dimensional (2D) materials. Using advanced materials characterisation techniques (such as spectroscopic and diffractive in-situ techniques and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy) his work develops rational synthesis and integration protocols for nanomaterials, such as controlled chemical vapour deposition (CVD) and integration of carbon (graphene, carbon nanotubes) and related inorganic nanomaterials (hexagonal Boron-Nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides, pnictogens).

Dr. Bayer thereby aims to facilitate industrially-scalable growth and use of low-dimensional nanomaterials with highly controllable properties and enable their controlled device integration with other functional materials such as metals, metal-oxides and organics. This contributes to realisation of a wide range of nanomaterials applications including low-cost, transparent, flexible electronics, efficient low-cost energy harvesting/storage devices and ultrathin functional coatings of structural materials.

To date Dr. Bayer's work has resulted in >55 peer-reviewed international journal publications including ACS Nano, Appl. Phys. Lett., J. Phys. Chem. C, Chem. Mater. and Nano Lett. with >3000 citations and an h-index of 30 (Google-Scholar).

Before joining the Institute of Materials Chemistry at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), Dr. Bayer held a Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship from the European Commission at the Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna, Austria and prior to this he was a Research Associate at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, UK and a College Research Fellow at Hughes Hall, Cambridge. He holds a PhD degree and a Master degree from the University of Cambridge, UK as well as a Bachelor degree from the Graz University of Technology, Austria. To date Dr. Bayer has acquired a total of EUR ~460k third-party funding as principal investigator incl. several industrial-liaison projects from the FFG (Österreichische Forschungsförderungsgesellschaft/Austrian Research Promotion Agency).
