Materials

 

Our ambition

LIST's Materials Research and Technology (MRT) department catalyses the translation of cutting-edge research on smart materials towards industrial innovation.

Our research challenges

We focus on two Key Enabling Technologies (KETs): nanomaterials and nanotechnology, and composite materials. We have also a technology line dedicated to "Advanced Instrumentation for Ion Nano-Analytics".

Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology

  • Ferroic materials for transducers
  • Transparent electronics and optical tuneable nanocomposites
  • Nano-enabled medicine and cosmetics

Composite Materials

  • Bio-based and functional composites
  • Adhesion and interface engineering

Technology Line

Emerging research topics

Transducing materials and actuators, Photocatalysis and energy harvesters, Transparent electronics and smart nanocomposites, Point-of-Care and drug delivery, Modelling and design of structures and multifunctional composites, Bio-based polymers and composites, Adhesion and compatibilization of fibres/matrix, Process engineering and advanced manufacturing

Key markets and sectors

  • Space and Aeronautics
  • Smart Glass and Buildings
  • Sensors and Automotive
  • High-Tech Equipment and Consumer Goods
  • Medical and Cosmetics

Equipment and facilities

In our Central Materials Laboratory, we have a unique variety of expertise and equipment at the cutting edge of technology.

We offer to our clients access to these expertise and equipment for their own research and innovation projects and propose via our Materials Characterisation and Testing Platform  a wide range of standardized and made-to-measure services in: Molecular analysis, Elemental and isotopic analysis, Structure, morphology and topography, Mechanical testing and accelerated ageing, Fire testing, and Thermal analysis.
