Nanopowder Lab

The Nanopowder Lab was recently installed for the chemical synthesis of semiconducting  nanoparticles under inert atmosphere, for the surface modification of these nanoparticles at the atomic scale and for the compaction to nanograined composited materials with oxide-free interfaces by spark plasma sintering. This facility will be extended for the integration of nanoparticles into MEMS devices for high temperature applications.
