The main objectives of this project are: 1) the development and investigation of novel nanostructures and low dimensional systems to substantially increase storage capacities; and 2) the development of new advanced technological materials for ultimately small digital and analogous devices and functional elements. The technology of fabrication of cluster-containing thin films and polymer matrix as well as more complicated nanostructures will be developed new types of rare-earth and transition metals containing clusters fixed in a polymer matrix will be synthesized and studied. The project will contribute to the understanding of physical and chemical properties of nanosystems, which is important for the development of technologies involving nano-scale functional elements (high density memory devices, single-electron tunnel systems, etc.).
