    • The department of Ceramic Materials Engineering focuses its research work on functional and structural ceramic materials and their implementation in industrial products. Our technical and scientific staff provides a wide field of expertise in the development of new ceramic materials including quality assurance and simulation, the optimization of processes and manufacturing routes and their characterization and determination of material properties. Major areas of research are all engineering aspects of ceramic matrix composites (CMC), including optimized component, structural design and various joining techniques.

      The research work is clustered around individual teams working together with a high level of interdisciplinarity. CME is affiliated with different international institutes and industrial partners. Our modern laboratories and manufacturing facilities, combined with our scientific staff, offer an ideal basis for cooperations and joint-ventures.

    • Core competencies:
    • New material concepts for oxide (OFC - Oxide Fiber Composites) and non-oxide (C/C-SiC) composites are developed and the relationships between microstructure and material properties are systematically investigated.
      Conventional as well as porous matrix approaches are used to optimize the damage tolerance and fracture toughness of CMCs.
      Development of SiCN-precursors, Modification of SiCO-precursors, Tailoring precursor properties (viscosity, rheology, pyrolysis behaviour), Functionalisation of surfaces, Metal-ceramic gradient materials.
      Development and synthesis of organic additive systems for high solid containing suspensions, focusing on surfactants and binder components.
      Dispersing and stabilizing ceramic suspensions by combining chemical and mechanical forces.
      Development of permanent and non-permanent metal-ceramic and ceramic-ceramic joining techniques.
