Team 2: Functional Materials

The group develops activity in the field of the synthesis of molecular precursors of materials, the preparation of materials of various shapes (particles, films, monoliths) using colloidal chemistry and soft-chemistry routes (sol-gel), the design of plasmonic structures (metal nanoparticles, plasmonic composite films and monoliths), composite inorganic or hybrid materials, and the surface modification. Among the expertise, the control of interfaces is crucial both on inorganic and hybrid materials.
