The collaboration with the Materials Science Engineering Department and in particular with the Prof. Alessandro Martucci group, is the result of 20 years research in the field of ceramics, glass and nanocomposited film, obtained by the sol-gel chemistry for photonic sensors, optical and gas applications.The research concerns the synthesis of ceramic materials and glassy composites, both in bulk and film containing different nanoparticles types, in order to control the structure of the materials and obtain the desired properties. Such materials are developed either by traditional techniques (casting, sintering) and innovative chemical techniques (sol-gel, colloid chemistry). The laboratory is able to synthesize nanopowders of oxides of metals and semiconductors for obtaining nanocomposites with structural or functional properties and it has provided of the technologies for thin films and thick (spinning, dipping, spraying) deposition.
