PhD in Advanced Materials and Nanosciences

Brno University of Technology

Advanced Materials and Nanosciences

CEITEC BUT offers you a unique inter-institutional graduate programme, which in general is based on the CEITEC project research programmes. Currently, one doctoral programme is available – Advanced Materials and Nanosciences. This programme is based on the cooperation of two universities and one research institute - Brno University of Technology, Masaryk University and the Institute of Physics of Materials of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

The Advanced Materials and Nanosciences programme is composed of two fields of study:

  • Advanced Nanotechnologies and Microtechnologies
  • Advanced Materials

Advanced Nanotechnologies and Microtechnologies

About

The research is focused on the area of nanotechnologies covering materials and structures to be exploited in nanoelectronic and nanophotonic applications. The research involves the preparation, characterization, and analysis of the properties of nanostructures enabling active application of the principles determining the unique and specific properties of nanostructures. Attention will be paid to research into 2D – OD nanostructures produced by lithographic (top-down) methods and self-organizing (bottom-up) methods. The research will consider semiconductor nanostructures, magnetic and metallic nanostructures, nanotubes and nanofibres, supra-molecules and nano-electronic material on the edge of Moore's law, etc.

Dissertation thesis topics

The dissertations thesis topics proposed within the Advanced Nanotechnologies and Microtechnologies research programme correspond to the research interests and objectives of research of these research groups: Fabrication and Characterization of Nanostructures, Smart Nanodevices, Optoelectronic Characterization of Nanostructures, X-ray micro CT and nano CT, Micro and Nanotribology, Development of Methods for Analysis and Measuring, Experimental Biophotonics, Transport and Magnetic Properties, Functional Properties of Nanostructures, Plasma Technologies and Synthesis and Analysis of Nanostructures.

Advanced Materials

About

The programme of Advanced Materials is focused on advanced (functional and structural gradient, nanostructural and smart) ceramic materials, polymers, metals, and composites. Basic research is focused on advanced methods of synthesis (or preparation) of advanced materials and multifunctional composites with polymeric, ceramic, silicate or metallic matrixes, characterization of their structures on various dimensional scales and quantifying structure-property-function relationships on the various structural levels. Combined research in the fields of advanced ceramic materials, polymeric composites, and metallic composites is focussed on applications in medicine, electrical engineering, power engineering, engineering, chemistry and building engineering.
