PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT
OPTIC COMMUNICATION MEDIA
In our laboratories we have been developing ceramic materials possessing special electric, optic and chemical traits. This is alongside the ability to manufacture pure and high quality level hydrogen fuel by means of splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. The goal and subject matter of the Phayronet research is to develop brand new technologies in order to produce solar fuels, which could replace oil, or, at least, lessen our dependence on it. Besides, one of the project objectives is to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Our laboratory deals with nanophotonic components in making tiny on-chip optical devices needed for optic communication media, sensors and simulation purposes.
DEVELOPMENT OF SILICON-BASED NANO MATERIALS
We also work with the development of silicon-based nanomaterials. The latter are designated for biological sensors for further fast virulence identification in both food and water. This, along with rapid identification of pesticides that penetrated foodstuffs, is also meant for building silicon devices that would deliver anticancer drugs.
Our Phayronet research is capable of packing nanoparticles of diverse types with DNA fragments. All these are inserted into cancer cells with the following purpose, namely: to apply nanoparticles as genetic material conductors that would mute the genes which have experienced a certain degree of mutation and which have consequently brought various diseases into the body. The general concept is to develop the novel trajectory control method through which all the problematic genes shall be tracked down, like the ones that are responsible for carcinogenesis.
