Grants and basic research
Group of Advanced Materials Group, the Department of Control Engineering has become one of the most successful groups in the field of materials science at the faculty. The aim of our research is the field of surface engineering, namely thin, solid layers created by physical or chemical methods.
AdvaMat s.r.o. We are a company mainly engaged in the research and development of thin films and materials. The company was established as a star-up CTU in Prague, from the Department of Advanced Materials.
Current research topics cover new deposition methods, coating development with unique optical, mechanical or tribological properties, and design of a new test facility. The group is successful in top-level research (more than 60 papers in journals published in impacted journals over the last five years, more than 400 citations, ten lectures at international conferences) and in obtaining financial support (projects from national to EU, a total of more than € 1.5M in 5 years). Also, the group has strong national and international cooperation with academic and industrial partners.
Our main themes include:
- Low friction adaptive coatings
- High-temperature tribology
- Biocompatible coatings
- Development of interface with better radiation resistance
- Modeling and simulation at atomic level
