CEITEC Brno University of Technology offers you a unique inter-institutional graduate programme, which in general is based on the CEITEC 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 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.
Advanced Nanotechnologies and Microtechnologies
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.
