Research Group "High-Performance Ceramics"

The use of ceramic materials has accompanied human civilization since the Neolithic Age. In the present, oxide and non-oxide ceramics experience wide-spread use in diverse technological fields owing to their unique mechanical and thermal properties.

Embedded in the Institute of Chemical Technologies and Analytics at Vienna University of Technology, we engage in the development of structural ceramic materials with defined properties for harsh environments.

In addition to conventional ceramic processing, our research is focused on the application and development of alternative production techniques such as the controlled thermal decomposition of preceramic polymers yielding novel ceramic compounds and composites.
