At the Advanced Materials Department, we investigate novel materials through an understanding of the mutual dependence of their structural, microstructural and functional characteristics. Modern technologies that enable the synthesis of materials with atomic- and microscale precision are used to prepare pre-designed structural 3D materials, thin films and nanoparticles with the desired crystal structure, chemical composition, microstructure and morphology.

Our research is focused on following specific studies:   

o Electronics:
Oxide-semiconductor integration
Heterostructures for piezoelectric applications and energy storage 

o Energy conversion:
Nanoparticles and thin films for photoelectrochemical water splitting
Advanced thermal-isolation materials 

o Medicine:
Novel antimicrobial nanotechnologies 
Organic piezoelectric biomaterials
