Ceramics with deeper structural heterogeneities
Period: 1/1/14 - 12/31/17
Keramer med inre strukturella heterogeniteter Sintring av både metaller och de icke-metalliska keramerna sker vid höga temperaturer där rörligheten av de minsta komponenterna som skall bilda solida kroppar är tillräckligt hög. Det här projektet behandlar hur man snabbt kan sintra keramer till ...
Coalescence of Nanocrystals in Ceramics
Period: 1/1/09 - 12/30/11
A recent discovery made by the applicants, that the grain growth of nanocrystals does not primarily take place via the accepted atomic epitaxial growth mechanism, but rather dominantly via ordered coalescence of nanocrystals, has opened an entirely new perspective for microstructure engineering and ...
Consolidation of powder components using unconventional sintering driving forces; fundamentals and implications
Period: 1/1/06 - 12/31/08
The objective of this project is to establish a fundamental understanding of the mass transport processes activated by external electric/magnetic fields and laser/electron beam irradiations, respectively. The experiments comprise investigations of the kinetics of densification, reaction and grain ...
Functional Nitrides for Energy Applications
Period: 3/15/11 - 12/31/15
The FUNEA vision is to develop an integrated and multidisciplinary research and training programme in the field of inorganic nitrides for energy applications. In terms of fundamental research, the FUNEA aims to advance the state-of-the-art knowledge and understanding of inorganic nitrides and mixed ...
Transparent Nano-ceramics
Period: 1/1/08 - 12/30/10
It has been a difficult task to retain a nano-grained structure in solid ceramics, but to assure that the prepared nano-ceramics appear transparent is an even serious challenge. The current state of the art in ceramic processing is hard to solve this problem and further fundament research will be ...
