Welcome to "Smart Materials", a unique place where the leading scientists in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, nanotechnology, data science and artificial intelligence work together in one laboratory. We offer a "full-cycle" of materials development: from computer modelling to chemical synthesis and extensive characterization.
More than 1,000 hours per year, our researchers spend at the synchrotron radiation sources performing cutting-edge experiments to study materials under working conditions. Whether for catalysis, energetics, gas storage or sensing, these operando studies are the key for understanding the materials' functionality at the atomic level.
We hold the world-leading positions in the field of X-ray absorption spectroscopy. Several programs for XANES analysis, including those based on machine learning algorithms, have been developed by our team or in collaboration with our international partners.
