Nanocomposite Technology

The research field Nanocomposite Technology designs functional composites with particles that tune optical, mechanical, electronic, protective, and barrier properties. It develops new, active composites that react to the external stimuli or damage – i.e. to scratches or to the onset of corrosion – or can change their properties when required. In cooperation with industrial users, the research field evaluates and adapts new composites, and transfers them to the markets.
