The Functional Materials Group responds to challenges of a modern industry by designing and developing materials with new, unique properties through an interdisciplinary approach, advanced
equipment (thin-film technology, 3D printing, SPS materials sintering, HIP and Vacuum Sintering) and versatile material analysis (optical, electric, heat transfer, photocatalysis and mechanical
research). The team consists of people with passion, whose ambitions contribute to scientific growth and are focused on specific applications (including thermoelectric materials and composite
coatings within the Sustainable Economy field, cancer diagnostics materials within the Health field, sensors and solar cells in packages for intelligent and clean mobility).
