  • 1 Ceramics are still surprising us

    In this way ceramics are obtained in which the metallic oxides are very closely interwoven in the form of monocrystals, which gives them remarkable mechanical properties... A second thesis is in progress to evaluate the mechanical properties of these materials, particularly creep properties (deformations) and toughness (fragility in the presence of a defect)
  • 2 Dendrites

    This Nb3Si phase (which is not desired because of bad mechanical properties) can be transformed into Nb5Si3 (through the reaction 3 Nb3Si- -4 Nb + Nb5Si3) if a subsequent heat treatment is applied... The work programme includes definition of alloy compositions, extensive characterisation, and development of industrial scale processing, manufacturing and machining techniques to propose a new generation of materials exhibiting an acceptable trade-off between mechanical properties (at low and high temperature) and oxidation resistance
  • 3 Plasma lens

    No mechanical movement. It's controlled by varying the properties of a rather special lens- made of plasma- a material state constituted of ions and electrons with very particular properties...
