The core activities of the Laboratory for High Performance Ceramics are the synthesis, processing, characterization and in-depth analyses of advanced ceramic materials and composites with tailored structural and functional properties. One key focus area are nanomaterials and ceramics for energy and environment technologies with a special focus on fuel cell and filtration technologies, photocatalytic degradation of pollutants and photoelectric
generation of electricity and solar fuels, such as hydrogen.
In cooperation with partners from Empa, Universities and Industry, we conduct targeted feasibility studies in our specialized processing laboratories to find novel solutions to problems in the field of structural and functional ceramic materials.
In Additive Manufacturing, we use Selective Laser Melting (SLM) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) as well as Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) of ceramic materials and functional composite materials. Furthermore, we use reactive tape casting technologies in combination with Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM) to shape three-dimensional gradient structures.
