 Description of RTD activities
Material Sciences, Studuying the phenomena taking place during solid state as well as liquid phase sintering of oxides and non-oxides. Additive effect on the phase equilibria and properties. Solid state reactions activated by introducing mechanical energy into the system. Orriginally developed methods for nanopowder syntheses predominantly for SOFC components.Structural and microstructural studies of ceramics. Effect of dopants on the structural and microstructural properties of ceramic electrolyties, Mechanical properties first of all fracture toughness.
