What you always wanted to know about porous ceramics... As part of the series Fascination Ceramics of the German Ceramic Society (https://www.dkg.de), Dr. Tobias Fey gave a lecture on "Porous Ceramics - Fabrication, Characterization and Simulation" on Feb. 17, 2022. The talk is available at (h...

Kevin Rieß successfully defended his doctoral thesis on "Defect-modulated Electrical and Mechanical Properties of Sodium Bismuth Titanate". His research was focused on understanding the influence of A-site non-stoichiometry on electromechanical properties in Bi-based lead-free ferroelectrics, where ...

Biominerals – shells, teeth, or even bones – are ceramics generated by organisms whose function and resilience have been evolutionarily optimized over millions of years. In contrast to conventional, synthetic ceramics, these biological ceramics often exhibit very complex and well-controlled crystall...

The article “In situ combined stress- and temperature-dependent Raman spectroscopy of Li-doped (Na,K)NbO3” by Dr. Neamul Khansur and an international team of co-authors from Germany, Japan, and China was recently selected as one of the best papers of 2021 for the Journal of the American Ceramic Soci...

We congratulate Michael Beck on the successful defense of his doctoral dissertation entitled "Optical properties of film cast single and multilayer transparent YAG and spinel ceramics" on February 2, 2022. Mr. Beck carried out his PhD project in our institute under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Andre...

Prof. Daisuke Urushihara, Assistant Professor at the Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan, has joined the Functional Ceramics Research Group of the Institute of Glass and Ceramics for a 6-month research visit as part of the International Research and Training Group (GRK2495) "Energy Conversion Syst...
