High-performance ceramics are key components in numerous application areas and are characterized by outstanding mechanical, chemical, electrical and biological properties.

Basis for a successful development of oxide ceramic components with high density, purity and strength is the targeted selection of suitable commercially available raw materials or in-house synthesized materials. High-performance ceramics with defined microstructures and minimal defects are the goal of the development.

The group “Materials Synthesis and Development” offers customers and project partners a comprehensive portfolio of synthesis and treatment technologies in order to identify the suitable material for respective individual requirements and to qualify it for processing and application. The long-standing know-how of the scientists with all releveant oxide ceramic materials as well as outstanding technical infrastructure are central at that. Unique competencies particularly exist for transparent materials, precursor ceramics as well as ceramic luminescent materials.
