Ceramics & Nanocomposites

Department Head: Csaba BALÁZSI
Deputy Head: János VOLK

The main task of the department is to study the relationships between processing parameters, micro- and nanostructures and properties of ceramics and their nanocomposites.

Recent activities:

  • investigation of mechanical, electrical, thermal, sensorical and biological properties
  • development of carbon nanotube silicon nitride nanocomposites
  • 1D, 2D and 3D semiconductor oxides for sensor devices
  • hydroxyapatite biocomposites for medical and enviromental uses, outcome of advanced preparing methods
  • pilot scale production of silicon nitride tools and parts
