Overview

The topics of interest of our group are Protective coatings, Thermal barrier coatings, High-temperature materials, Photonics, High-temperature photonics, Nanostructures, Energy conversion and storage, Reactivity in solids, Organic/Inorganic materials, Molecular electronics, see Recent publications. We perform conceptualization, chemical and solid-state synthesis and characterization of new functional materials for industrial applications, see Recent projects, Recent presentations. The characterization methods comprise single crystal and powder crystallography, in situ X-ray measurements at high temperature and under controlled atmoshpere, high-resolution scanning and transmission electron microscopy, dilatometry, DTA, measurement of physical properties of crystals, powders and films. Modeling includes heat transport and heat dissipation, band structure and force-field calculations. The group is working very close to the industries, see Recent patents.
