Research Activities
The Laboratory of Moessbauer Spectroscopy and Materials Physics is involved in the study of magnetic and electronic properties of matter, materials characterization through Moessbauer Spectroscopy, EPR and X-ray diffraction, preparation and study of magnetic materials, thin films, nanoparticles, clays, layered materials, synthetic molecular compounds and catalysts.

Studies of surface and interface properties are carried out in the Laboratory of Surface Physics and Solids Interfaces, using various techniques, such as low energy electron diffraction (LEED), Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), mass spectroscopy (QMS) and work function measurements (WF).

Research interests in the Laboratory of Electronic Telecommunications and Applications include studies of fluorescent materials and electric characterization of thin films and semiconductors using Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy (DLTS) and electric measurements (I-V, C-V). X-ray investigations of the electronic structure of light elements are also performed through conventional and rotating anode X-ray tubes. Molecular dynamics and Monte-Carlo simulations based on semi-empirical interaction potentials or Tight-Binding theory and Augmented Plane Wave (APW) methods are used in materials studies. Other activities include the development of analog and digital systems, telecommunication systems, optical signal transmission, digital signal processing and transmission, software radio, beam forming, smart antennas etc

In the Laboratory of Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science, scientific interests include the study of the structure and dynamics of "soft" matter, namely synthetic and biological macromolecules, colloids and liquid crystals using X-ray scattering, dielectric spectroscopy and rheology. Calculations of the ab initio electronic structure of solids and simulations of structural and dynamic properties of solids and surfaces are also an area of research. Other activities are related to the physics of condensed matter, γ and X ray spectroscopy and studies of the electronic structure of metal-hydrogen systems.
