FunMat II (Functional Nanoscale Materials) is a second generation competence center in material science. FunMat-II is focusing its efforts to three application areas: functional surfaces for cutting tools, fuel cells, and batteries. We obtain basic knowledge about materials behavior and the physics and chemistry of the synthesis processes, and design new materials with unique properties. Besides this, we study how the materials perform in specific applications. We study all aspects using combinations of theory, modeling, experiments, and field tests. The information obtained is generic and can be applied to a wide range of applications, which makes FunMat-II a true competence center in functional surfaces optimized at the nanoscale.
