Advanced Materials

____________________________ Advanced Materials

At the IPICYT’s Advanced Materials Department theoretical and experimental research into new materials such as nanostructured and organic materials for application in organic electronics is conducted, with the purpose of understanding their mechanical, electronic and magnetic properties for application into new technology.

If you’d like to know more about the department’s carbon nanostructure activities, we invite you to enter the Carbon Nanostructure Group Site. On the other hand, if you’re interested in finding out more about the Department’s Materials Science activities, we invite you to take a look around our Materials Science Site.

Within our department, studies in the field of nanotechnology are developed in the following areas:

  • Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
  • Magnetic Materials
  • Computational Materials Science

The department’s strategy is to select major problems in these areas in order to understand, transform, and develop new applications.

One constant among these studies is that they are being carried out from a multidisciplinary perspective to attack and solve problems, especially with new materials for use in modern technology.

In the Department of Advanced Materials we are convinced that the discovery of cutting-edge technology must be based on the understanding of basic scientific concepts, which in turn will provide the guidelines to propose new concepts that can open frontiers never before discovered in science.

One of our strengths lies in the network of researchers that collaborates with us.


We are a Department:

  • That conducts research, offers characterization and consulting services to public and private sector institutions, creates scientific-technological knowledge of excellence in the study and design of new nanostructured, functional, and biological materials.

  • That offers a national graduate program of excellence with international presence in this area for the education of professionally competitive human resources committed to Mexican society.

  • That is supported by specialized, comprehensive and state-of-the-art infrastructure as well as necessary partnerships and collaborations with national and international educational institutions and research centers.


To be a department based on interdisciplinary research with direct access to three national laboratories and consolidated lines of research that serve to boost the graduate program’s internationalization and the formation of competitive students. To attain an optimal association with the public and private sectors through training and continuous education of faculty, the innovation and strengthening of infrastructure to become an internationally recognized regional scientific hub with innovation and the creator of research with a social impact.
