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. We developed approaches for the synthesis of these materials in different forms: bulk, thin films, nanopowders, nanorods, and hierarchical nanostructures.
We are also developing innovative applications for the Field Assisted Sintering (FAST) technique, using 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.
