Dr. Dimitra Vernardou is an Adjunct Lecturer of Science Department at the Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Crete, Greece. She is also a visiting Professor in the University of Crete, Department of Materials Science and Technology. She obtained her B.Sc in Chemistry from University of Salford in 2000, her M.Sc in Polymer Science and Technology from UMIST in 2001 and her Ph.D in Physical Chemistry from University of Salford in 2005. Her Ph.D dissertation (under the supervision of Prof. Martyn E. Pemble and Prof. David W. Sheel) was entitled “The Growth of Vanadium Dioxide Thin Films by Chemical Vapor Deposition”.

Her research interests involve the growth of nanostructures and thin films of metal oxides by one-pot direct hydrothermal growth, Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition and electrodeposition for applications in electrochromics, thermochromics and self-cleaning layers. Her recent research work is concentrated on the construction of low cost devices using chemical routes to suit both the glass and plastic industry. She is currently the supervisor of 5 students during their final year projects from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Technology (University of Crete).

Center of Materials Technology and Photonics (CEMATEP) is a joint laboratory of the departments of the School of Applied Technology of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete (TEI Crete), established in 2003. Its activities are dedicated to the growth, study and application of novel materials and photonics.

Research activities

The research efforts in CEMATEP are focused on the exploitation of advanced thin films, nanostructures and nanocomposites suitable for applications like solar cells, chromic layers for solar control coatings, optoelectronics, photodetectors and organic electronics. CEMATEP is well equipped with state of the art facilities and its members have important scientific outcome as well as excellent national and international collaborations.
