Science for Discovery at the Nanoscale
The Laboratory for Radiation Chemistry and Physics “Gamma” is devoted to fundamental and applied research in the field of Materials Chemistry and Physics.
Our research involves materials synthesis and characterization and is supported by a creative and dedicated staff along with a modern collection of materials characterization equipment. Nanoparticles and nanocomposites are currently the focus of our research, with the aim of improving synthesis procedures and the properties of materials, and to apply them to new technologies. Synthesis and characterization include different types of nanoparticles: semiconductor quantum dots, noble metal nanoparticles, luminescence and up-converting nanoparticles, graphene, and carbon nanotubes.
