New Spin-off Company founded by FORTH for the production of photocatalytic materials that improve air quality
Feb 18, 2020
A new Spin-off company, that will leverage a patented technology developed by Prof. George Kiriakidis and Dr. Vassilis Binas, researchers at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL, www.iesl.forth.gr), was recently founded by the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (www.forth.gr). This spin-off company, called PCN Materials, is the first of FORTH to be financed by the European Investment Fund (EIF) through the venture capital and private equity firm Big Pi Ventures (https://bigpi.vc/).

FORTH-IESL Researchers explain how disorder in tiny crystals enables heat-therapeutic systems
FORTH-IESL Researchers explain how disorder in tiny crystals enables heat-therapeutic systems
Jan 22, 2020
A new research study at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of FORTH finds that minute crystals, many thousand times smaller than a particle of dust, when they are dressed by the right kind of imperfections, adjust their electronic properties to favorably convert energy into heat, an important attribute for potential use in smart materials for energy, health, sensors etc.
