Welcome to Nanotechnology & Advanced Materials Laboratory

It is our pleasure to welcome you to our research lab. Our lab is part of the Chemical Engineering Department of the University of Patras, Greece. We are interested in the behaviour of a wide range of materials, especially nanocomposites, polymer composites and smart materials. Please browse through our labs, research activities and publications and meet the people of NAM.
