Research Areas

The scientific activities of DMS are grouped into a number of research programs of high scientific and technological interest in materials science, with focus in materials related with nanotechnology (especially magnetic and semiconducting nanostructures), novel superconducting materials, as well as functional materials prepared with soft-chemistry techniques. These activities make DMS unique of its kind in Greece, and a national site of reference with respect to advanced materials of these kinds.

Another main goal of DMS is the study of ancient materials with modern techniques. Activities in this field are focused in the characterization and understanding of the mechanisms concerning the generation and degradation of these materials.

Finally, high level services and technology transfer to the Greek industry and society are of high priority for DMS.
