Our facilities include sputtering system (PVD), plasma-enhanced CVD reactors, fluid-bed reactors, hydrothermal/solvothermal vessels, different types of ball milling systems, anodization system, advanced plasma system, and solid-state reactors (various types of tube and muffle furnaces).

IFM also has equipment to produce large quantities of electrode materials for industry-scale application.

These facilities are designed to help us create new nanomaterials which will play a role in developing new technologies, such as: i) large scale energy storage, ii) energy saving technologies; iii) efficient heat dissipation technologies; and iv) technologies for environmental protection. These technologies will revolutionise industries in energy, aerospace, automotive and electronics.
