The “Research Lab of Advanced, Composite, Nano Materials & Nanotechnology”, R-Nano is situated at the School of Chemical Engineering (Department of Materials Science and Engineering) of National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).
It was established in 2007; its research group has extensive experience in Designing, Production and Characterization of Advanced-, Composite- and Nano- Materials.
The core expertise of the RNano research team includes: synthesis of carbon nanotubes, development of advanced anticorrosive coating systems reinforced with various types of nanocontainers with self-responsive ability, electrochemical characterization and elucidation of corrosion behaviour and mechanisms, nano-/micro- mechanical and tribological characterization.
Our services include advanced materials processing and characterization, 3d printing, synthesis of ceramic nano- powders through chemical methods, coating techniques, development of carbon-based materials with tailored properties, social & safety implications of nanotechnology, technological assessment and sustainability studies in nanotechnology, corrosion protection, engineering simulation and mathematical modeling.
RNano participates in many H2020 and Horizon Europe research programmes and is involved actively in EMCC, EMMC, EUMAT and AMI2030 initiatives.
