Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering & Dept of Physics (DEMSE-DP/UoI)

Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE) and Department of Physics (DP) of the University of Ioannina (UoI), GR45110, Ioannina, Greece

The University of Ioannina (UοI) is an independent Higher Education Institution founded in 1964 at Ioannina, the capital of the Epirus region at Northwestern Greece. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE) and the Department of Physics (DP) of the University of Ioannina which run more than 20 and 50 years respectively, contain a "critical mass" of scientists and Engineers with complementary expertise (Chemists, Physicists, Materials Scientists and Engineers) that are currently involved in different aspects of nanomaterials’ preparation/characterization and applications. The “DMSE-DP/UOI” brings together University of Ioannina excellence in materials research, particularly in the development and characterization of ceramics, composites, polymers, metals and metal alloys, magnetic, semiconducting and conducting materials, electronic materials, computational modelling and simulations. High-importance objectives of DMSE-DP/UOI are the design and development of new architectured functional materials such as hybrid organic-inorganic nanocomposites, carbon nanostructures (carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, graphene oxide), mesoporous materials, biocatalysts magnetic nanoparticles and hierarchical materials including synthesis, characterization, process optimization and up to the commercialization level.

DMSE-DP/UOI serves as partner in Innovation-el and as an access-site, offers integrated lab facilities for development of new functional materials based on carbon nanostructures. DMSE-DP/UOI is also an access-site for advanced structural characterization, offering, micro Raman and Mid-IR spectroscopies, Far-IR and chemical mapping capabilities, Atomic Force Microscopy, Magnetic and Moessbauer spectroscopy measurements. Additional capabilities include allow for in the situ application of thermal, electrical and mechanical fields in both quasi static and dynamic configurations on the optical table for the monitoring of coupled interactions
