Nanomaterials Laboratory

The Nanomaterials laboratory was established at the MSE Department – Sharif University of Technology in 2010 for two main purposes, including synthesis and characterization of advanced nanomaterials. However, it was first established in Pardis Technology Park (PTP) in 2007. The majority of researches focused on employment of synthesized nanomaterials for solar cells applications.

Different equipment for synthesis of various nanostructures (i.e., zero-, one- and two-dimensional nanostructures) with different morphologies using wet chemistry (chemical) routes have been provided. These include, not limited to, sol-gel, hydrothermal, solvothermal, chemical bath deposition, electrochemical and electrophoretic depositions. Moreover, nanocoatings, thin films and thick films can be prepared by dip- and spin-coating techniques. Titanium dioxide (TiO2), with various morphologies such as nanoparticles, nanowires, corn-like nanowires, nanotubes, skein-like nanotubes, dandelion-like particles, hierarchical rparticles, hollow spheres and CNT-TiO2 hybrid has been widely studied. In addition, synthesis of graphene and its derivatives has been carried out.   

Some equipment such as Ultraviolet–visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy, solar simulator and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) has been provided to characterize the synthesized nanomaterials.
