CNI is back in operation!

From today 4th of May CNI has started its way to go back to normal operation. Following the recommended safety procedures for COVID-19, the researchers started their activities in the TEM, Raman spectroscopy, 2D materials growth and characterization laboratories. Soon chemical synthesis and nanoteranostic will follow. The number of researchers that enter the lab every day is still limited but as the things will go better it will growth to normal condition. We hope also that soon PhD students and master student can join us prosecuting their thesis projects.
