Much attention has been paid to the production and the storage of energy from various sources such as water, solar energy, wind, petroleum, and others. The research of nowadays is oriented in the direction to produce new materials of high economic yields such as Nanomaterials, which can improve the efficiency of electronic devices.
On the other side, Saudi Vision 2030 is a plan to reduce the country's dependence on petroleum resources, diversify its economy, and develop public service sectors such as health, education, infrastructure, recreation, and tourism. This unit aims to manufacture high-quality nanomaterials for use in many industrial and environmental applications, and energy uses to adapt to the modern national trend.
The most important research topics in this unit are:
- Nanomaterials Synthesis and Applications.
- Nanomaterials Theory and Experiments.
- Nanomaterials for Medical Applications.
