The activities in Plasma Nanotechnology can be seen schematically below:

Fig. 1 Schematic of activities of Plasma Nanotechnology

  • The heart of our activities and our first objective is to advance and promote plasma nanofabrication, and plasma nanotechnology. This is seen as the central circle in the figure on the left and described in section A (see Research topics A on the right of this screen). Around plasma nanotechnology a series of activities are clustered.
  • Our second objective is to develop nanometrology and characterization methodologies for nanostructure description (see topic B).
  • Our third objective is to understand and improve plasma and other processes using modelling and simulation (see topic C).
  • Our fourth objective is to exploit our plasma nanotechnology toolbox to enable a variety of applications (see topic D) with focus on: – Surface Engineering (“smart surfaces” see topic D1), – Microfluidics and Lab on Chip for Life Sciences (see topic D2), – NanoDevices for Energy (see topic D3).

For all these objectives, we work in coordination with the clean room facility, often transferring samples to and from it, and in collaboration with several other projects such as the biomicrosystems project, and the Lithography project, as well as several laboratories inside and outside of NCSR Demokritos. Our team operates two laboratories: a plasma nanotechnology and a microfludics laboratory.

Awards-News-Highlights

demokritos-“LOVEFOOD” FP7-Project, in which NCSR “Demokritos” is a partner, was included in EU’s Edition “Achievements of FP7: Examples that Make us Proud”


-The plasma Nanotechnology – Lab on Chip group of INN is a partner of the H2020-ICT KET Innovation Action entitled LoveFood2Market. The project is a continuation of project (LOVE-FOOD 2012-2016) towards TRL 6, and it targets the development and commercialization of a new diagnostic system for pathogen detection in food samples. Drs Evangelos Gogolides, Angeliki Tserepi, Vasilios Constantoudis and Stavros Chatzandroulis from INN and Drs Dimitrios Mastellos, Sotirios Kakabakos and Panagiota Petrou from INRASTES participate in the project, which is coordinated by Dr. Electra Gizeli from the University of Crete-FORTH. 3 Companies (from Germany, France, Greece), and 2 more academic / research partners (from France and Czech republic) participate in the project.


-Our research team received the 2nd Prize of the Hellenic Innovation and Applied Research Contenst organized by Eurobank and the Hellenic Industry Association 2013. For more details please click here.


-Researchers from our team participating in the Nanometrisis spin-off company were selected among the top 30 finalists in the Hello Tomorrow innovation contest. The final selection will take place in Paris on June 25th-27th 2015, http://hello-tomorrow.org/
