REC Functional Nanomaterials (FN) brings together a unique set of scientific and laboratory equipment for the nanomaterials synthesis and studying their critical properties (physical and chemical parameters, structural, magnetic, optical, etc. properties). This enables the REC FN to develop a wide variety of nanotechnology-based products: from novel materials for nanoelectronics and spintronics which is a material science problem to R&D work on hardening coatings for construction, metal, pharmaceutical, and other industries.
The research team works in an interdisciplinary science and technology field studying the properties of materials and development the devices with basic building blocks of only a few tens of nanometres in size.
- research and development of biosimilar nanoscale memristor-based memory elements;
- design and production of multilayer reflectors for visible light, x-ray, and neutron optics.
- design and fabrication of functional materials and surface structures for biomolecular research;
- nano-modification of materials and structures addressing the challenges in applied material science (including aerospace, nuclear, and energy industries)
- fabrication of silver-based nanocoatings for wound dressing;
- development of technological framework for nano-modified structures formation;
- a range of studies on structural properties, phase and chemical composition of objects with a nanometre resolution.
