Solar energy coatings are thin films of materials that have properties tailored to meet requirements set by natural surroundings or electronically.
The purpose of this group is the design and deposition of novel functional materials at the micro and nanoscale using low cost and environmentally up-scalable manufacturing technologies. Combining knowledge in chemistry, physics and engineering, we aim to understand the interface between materials chemistry and device engineering for applications related with temperature responsive and electroactive materials.
Center of Materials Technology and Photonics (CEMATEP) is a joint laboratory of the departments of the School of Applied Technology of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete (TEI Crete), established in 2003. Its activities are dedicated to the growth, study and application of novel materials and photonics.
The research efforts in CEMATEP are focused on the exploitation of advanced thin films, nanostructures and nanocomposites suitable for applications like solar cells, chromic layers for solar control coatings, optoelectronics, photodetectors and organic electronics. CEMATEP is well equipped with state of the art facilities and its members have important scientific outcome as well as excellent national and international collaborations.
