Group focused on the synthesis and application of nanomaterials. On one hand, we work on the synthesis of micro or nano-structured thin films generated by means of plasmas. We functionalize films for many different purposes, including applications in tribological systems, protection against corrosion, development of sensors. We also include plasma assisted thermochemical treatments to produce compact layers of nitrides. A research on composite materials generated with ceramic materials in polymers is carried out, and topics related to rheological and viscoplastic simulation of polymers are addressed. We also focus on the mathematical representation of growth kinetics of concomitant nitride layers, as well as the mathematical representation of effects of operating parameters in relation to the characteristics of formed thin films. We also perform structural characterization of steels and thin films.
