Our bioengineering research is focused in three broad areas:
surface modification of metals for medical applications, with improved cell materials interactions, bactericidal properties, and tribocorrosion resistant implants
development of bioglass for temporary implants, for biocidal membranes, functional coatings
mechanical and optical properties of dental materials
Our surface engineering research is focused in two broad areas:
metallic materials modified by electrolytic plasma processes for improved corrosion and wear resistance
mechanical, tribological, and corrosive properties of hard coatings
Apart from these activities, we also have research activities in the areas of non-conventional machining (EDM, and PM-EDM), and additive manufacturing.
