The aim of this line is to face a quality fundamental research to effectively afford the design of new materials. First goal is to find by design of the structure and microstructure of new advanced materials. Second goal is to address new functionalities based on the nanostructure scale of nanomaterials. To afford such objectives new processing routes in combination with the understanding of the functional properties of nanomaterials will be pursuit in this line.
Safe by design Micro-nanostructured ceramics and composites
The aim of this research line is to pursuit a quality fundamental research to effectively afford the design of new nanostructured micromaterials. First goal is to ensure that the nanoparticles remain stable during the material life cycle. This fact could introduce a real improvement in the previously applications of nanoparticles. Second goal is to address new functionalities based on the nanostructure materials. Materials in form of nanostructure microparticles or bulk materials are chosen to afford generalized or massive applications.
Implementation of advances process in traditional ceramics
Traditional industrialized ceramics employ advanced production processes that are open to the incorporation of functionalities. The biggest challenge continues to be the scaling of nanotechnological materials and their production in an industrial plant.
