The mission of the TASC-INFM National Laboratory is twofold: 1) It serves as a national resource for the solid state physics materials science, and synchrotron radiation spectroscopy communities, and 2) it implements a number of advanced in-house research programs including growth and elaboration of new materials and nanostructures.
Technitex is a Centre of Excellence for Technical Textiles. The new promise of technical and performance textiles is an emerging generation of products combining the latest developments in advanced flexible materials with advances in computing and communications technology, biomaterials, nanotechnology and novel process technologies such as plasma treatment.
CTC manages and performs innovative R&D projects in the fields of Aerospace, Automotive, and Energy (Nuclear and Renewable), in addition to a technological line of Advanced Materials (which is working in different reasearch lines about nanomaterials: Polymeric nanocomposites and graphene synthesis), while incorporating environmental criteria to assess the impact on the environment.
TEKNIKER is a technological center set up as a private not-for-profit foundation to help the industrial sector to increase its innovative capacity by means of generating and applying technology and knowledge in order to be more competitive. Expertise includes nanoimprint lithography for fabric engineering, vapor-phase deposition coatings, and nanostructuring of coatings.
The key areas in micro/nanoelectronics research being pursued at Tyndall include: The fabrication and characterisation of novel nanoscale device structures on silicon;The heterogeneous integration of nanoscale materials into practical working devices of interest to the electronics industry; The integration of novel functional materials onto active silicon devices, designed to permit the delivery of added functionality for systems-on-chip (SoC) applications including on-chip power, sensing and actuation.
