Optical Materials

The Program Division Optical Materials focusses on the development of composite materials for the functionalization of glass, ceramic and polymeric substrates to interact with electromagnetic radiation. Our expertise in wet chemical syntheses of organic-inorganic matrices combined with experience in the production of nanoparticles with specific chemical modifications allows the development of new optical materials for coating applications. Also, we fine-tune the chemical and physical properties of the new materials to fulfil the requirements of specific products and processes.
