Welcome to the LAMSC Website

The research in our lab is focused on the synthesis and the characterization of new materials for sensing, energy production, structural and biomedical applications.

The materials we investigate are mostly advanced ceramics, that we can produce as bulk, thin films, nanopowders, nanorods, and hierarchical nanostructures.

We also study innovative applications of the Field Assisted Sintering (FAST) technique, using innovative machines we design and develop in house.

Our characterization techniques include XRD, thermal analysis (TGA, DTA, DSC), optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SE, BS, EDS, EBSD), Impedance spectroscopy, EXAFS, and XANES.
