Electroactive Materials

72HR-HCL-10M-4In this work, vanadium oxide coatings were deposited on FTO glass substrates by hydrothermal synthesis varying the pH solution with hydrochloric acid. The coatings were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and cyclic voltammetry. The effect of pH solution on the morphology and electrochemical properties of the samples are considered. It was found that the rhombohedral structures of NH4V3O8 enhance the electrochemical properties compared to the hexagonal ones.

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.
