Materials

NANOTEC is engaged in various aspects of materials research for advanced applications. Research activities are focused on growth and synthesis with various physical and chemical methodologies (CVD, MOCVD, MBE, PVD, PECVD, self-assembling, sol-gel, etc); based on fundamental research, we elucidate principles underpinning processing-structure-property relationships in functional materials and nanomaterials both inorganic and organic, and their hybrids and nanocomposites, with interesting electronic, magnetic, optical, mechanical or catalytic properties; we exploit those relationships to introduce new functionalities in materials science and build a basis for “predicting” new materials based on the established principles. Topics covered include III-V semiconductors, Si-based alloys, organic semiconductors, dielectrics, piezoelectrics, ferroelectrics, nanomaterials, graphene, 2D-materials, nanocomposites, colloidal nanocrystals, non-crystalline solids, self-assembled monolayers and functional surfaces. Through these efforts, NANOTEC aims to create advanced materials that contribute to society functional innovations.

Nanostructures & Self Assembling

Nanomaterials are coming into use in healthcare, electronics, cosmetics, catalysis and other areas, because they bring novel mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical, electrochemical, catalytic properties…

Colloidal Inorganic Nanocrystals

Colloidal Inorganic Nanocrystals otherwise known as ‘artificial atoms’ because the density of their electronic states, which controls many physical properties, can be regularly tuned by maneuvering the chemical composition…
