Name Description
Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Bioprocesses This line of research aims to develop materials to be used in implants, going over the processes of project design, fabrication and assessment of their performance. It also deals with the processes of separation, purification and fractionation of natural products for applications in engineering.
Materials and processes to mitigate and control environmental impacts This line of research is intended to design materials and processes used in environmental control (water, air, soil, etc.) by making use of recycling, including those materials that enable safe energy use and application of technologies for the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
Metallic materials This line of research aims to study and design metallic alloys for several applications in engineering, involving the purification of raw materials, the study of the fabrication process, thermal and thermochemical treatments and use performance.
Modeling and Simulation Applied to Materials and Processes This line of research aims to study, under the perspectives of mathematical modeling and numerical simulation, the processes and technologies involved with materials production, transport and development. Hence, physical phenomena studies, strongly supported by transport phenomena, materials science and thermodynamics, will be looked at.
Nanostructured materials This line of research aims to design and characterize nanostructured materials for special applications, such as: conductive polymers, superhard lattices, magnetic materials, filters, sensors, etc.
Polymeric materials This line of research involves the synthesis and characterization of polymers and polymer matrix composites, intended for the production of conductive and biodegradable polymers and polymers for coatings, among others.
Semiconductors and photovoltaic cells This line of research is intended for the study and production of semi-conductive materials, as well as the fabrication and characterization of solar cells and the development of conventional and concentrator photovoltaics modules.
