Project: Thermo-mechanical study of new ceramics and their composites.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-02
- Ceramic materials are brittle in the temperature range in which they are synthesised and used Thermo)mechanical properties such as thermal expansion are therefore important characteristics. The thermo-mechanical analysis equipment for which funding was provides will amongst others be used in the future development of the following research projects: - development of thick and thin superconducting films on metallic substrates - synthesis of composites of Bi-2223 superconductors with MgO, Ag and polymers - research on ceramic materials exhibiting a negative thermal expansion.
