Reserach Group for Materials

The Research Group for Materials is a part of the Laboratory of Integrated Circuit Design.

The Research Group for Materials was established and registered at the Slovenian research Agency on February 2015. R&D activities focus on the development of sol-gel processes for the preparation of various nanostructured metal oxides and hybrid materials for different applications (smart windows, solar cells, catalysts, etc.). The group is equipped with the chemical laboratory for materials development and equipment for the thin layer deposition, manufacturing of dye-sensitized solar cells and smart windows. The laboratory is also equipped with an electrochemical workstation IME-6 (Zahner) and a solar simulator (Oriel, Newport), which enable complete electrochemical characterization of materials and various optoelectronic systems.

We are involved in national and international research projects and actively cooperate with partners in the economic sector.
