Processing and nano-structuring (PN)

Processing and Nanostructuring (PN)

The PNIL has a variety of world class and unique instrumentation and processing facilities, including coaters and processing in condensed fluids. This laboratory permits the preparation, processing and characterisation of nanostructured materials of all kinds.

MAGMANet Nodes Involved: CSIC, UVEG and ITN Knowledge & Expertise

Objectives:

  • Develop and apply innovative new processing technologies for the preparation of molecular magnets with controlled micro- and nanostructure.
  • Develop robust and easy to scale-up methodologies for the convenient processing of molecular magnets as films, nanowires, micro- and nanoparticles, or embedded in polymers.
The Processing and Nanostructuring Integrated Laboratory counts with experienced researchers which have expertise in the preparation of the following molecular materials, and in their characterization:
  • Magnetic and conducting materials precursors
  • Micro- and nanoparticulate materials (solids or dispersed in a liquid phase) (web link to CSIC micro- and nanoparticulate technology transfer)
  • Nanostructured surfaces (web link to CSIC patterning of organic conductors technology transfer)
  • Processing of nanostructured mono- and multi-layer molecular films
  • Preparation of nanoporous materials
  • Processing and nanostructuring of amorphous films
  • Processing molecular magnets and conductors embedded in polymeric matrix
