The laboratory for synthesis and investigation of nanomaterials is intended to synthesize the nanomaterilas by solid-gas and high temperature processes.
These nanopowders could be used, for example, to reinforce polymers for UMV (unmanned vehicles) or in artificial human joints; for mechanical defects sensors and rechargeable batteries.
Using of these nanoparticles for hydrogen storage will replace gasolines, oils/gases providing renewable energy sources which will reduce the greenhouse carbon dioxide gas in atmosphere.
