The PLASNAMAT research group belongs to the Instituto de Investigaciones en Materiales, IIM (Materials Research Institute) of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, UNAM.
Our aim is to advance the knowledge about materials science, particularly when the materials are synthesized using plasma-assisted techniques. We develop experimental techniques and methods to create new coatings and look into their possible applications.
As part of the university, we are also compromised with the training for the next generation of materials scientists.
