Welcome to PLATAN

Andrei Choukourov’s group of
PLAsma-TAilored Nanomaterials

Our international group performs research in various areas of science, including but not limited to:

  • – thin film deposition and nanoparticle (NP) formation under vacuum and low-temperature plasma conditions;
  • – resistive switching in nanofluids for neuromorphic applications;
  • – hybrid nanomaterials for laser-driven ion acceleration and proton-boron fusion;
  • – NP-assembled mesoporous coatings for photoelectrochemical water splitting;
  • – plasmonic and photoluminescent metal/semiconductor nanoparticles;
  • – optically active nanofluids;
  • – nanomaterials with regenerative and antimicrobial activity for wound healing;
  • – phase separation and nanoconfinement in homo- and copolymer thin films;
  • – solution plasma processing of natural polymers;
  • – plasma agriculture.
