Materials

The Department Materials Research and Technology (MRT) translates cutting-edge materials research into applicable technology.

Its activities span from Nanomaterials and enabling Nanotechnology to Sustainable Composite Materials. A transversal Central Materials Laboratory mutualises MRT's considerable expertise and equipment ranging from polymer and thin film processing to nano-fabrication, prototyping and functional measurements. MRT's research is further strengthened by a Platform for Advanced Characterization. Finally, the Department operates a Technology line, which focuses on the development of scientific instruments based on charged particle beams for nano-imaging and nano-analysis.
