Exploding and weeping ceramics

Researchers discover a path to a shape-shifting ceramic material

23-Nov-2021

From coffee cups to bathroom tiles, ceramics are brittle. Subject to the slightest deformation, they shatter. On the other end of the spectrum of materials, some of the most deformable materials known - that also support large stresses while they deform - are shape memory alloys. The origin of ...

Ceramic coatings for high-tech applications: New spraying method optimized

Powder Aerosol Deposition dense ceramic films can be applied to very different types of materials

24-Apr-2020

For a long time, the production of ceramic coatings has only been possible by means of sintering techniques conducted at more than 1,000 degrees Celsius. However, a novel spraying method, Powder Aerosol Deposition (PAD), enables their production at normal room temperatures. It is therefore highly ...
