Center for Surface Science and Nanotechnology (CSSNT-UPB) is a scientific research institution in the specialized field of surface science and nanotechnology. CSSNT-UPB, part of University Politehnica of Bucharest (UPB), has laboratories with the latest equipment, some of which are designed by researchers within the center. In a very short time CSSNT-UPB has become a center of excellence in the following areas:
- synthesis and possibly large scale production of advances nanomaterials;
- morphological, structural and electronic characterization in real space and 3D at atomic and nanometric scale;
- design and macro-, micro-, nano-sensors and nano-device prototypes using nanoparticles and nano-objects.
Due to its field of activity and research topics, CSSNT-UPB plays an important role in the development and evolution of the community. The results are most often expressed in new technologies and devices, that once patented, they are introduced in production and subsequently found in daily life.
Through grants and European projects, the management and researchers of the center have contributed to the development of new materials and technologies, which translate into a visible involvement in the society.
With a team of bold researchers that lend their knowledge, enthusiasm and experience to the benefit of society, CSSNT-UPB is one of the laboratories that creates high level specialists and deals with some of the most advanced scientific challenges in science and nanotechnology.
