FunMat explores high-impact surface engineering solutions for industry. It offers both problem-oriented research and application-inspired basic research on nano-scale functional materials and serves its partners with competitive competences and innovative solutions. We aim for a complete value chain with short lead time be-tween research and market.
The Center builds an internationally competitive environment of academic research groups, companies, and consulting research institutes that are all committed to ac-tive industry interaction. As a fundament for our research projects, FunMat is active in developing thin film deposition processes and generating IPR.
FunMat focuses on three fields of application;
- High-temperature-stable materials for coating cutting tools, chemical and biological sensors, and new nanoscale materials;
- Electrical Contacts for electronics and power transmission, and for gas and chemical sensors; and
- Low friction resilient surfaces
