Solutions for functional materials
Welcome to the website of the Laboratory of Biomaterials and Surface Engineering (LaBES). Here you will find detailed information about our research activities, equipment and people working on the exciting subject of synthesis and characterization of biomaterials, dental materials, and functional coatings.
Our laboratory is located in the Mechanical Engineering department at the Polytechnic School at Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR), a private not-for-profit university in Curitiba, Parana state, south of Brazil. LaBES is part of the large and collaborative group of reserach in Manufacturing and Materials area, composed by the Laboratory of Conventional and Non-conventional Machining (LAUS, coordinated by prof. Fred Amorim), and the Laboratory of Characterization and Materials Tests (LaCEM, coordinated by prof. Ricardo Torres).
