DOMAINS   > >   Ceramics and Glass

The field of "Ceramics and Glass" covers topics regarding the processing, composition, structure and microstructure, properties and technical and environmental performance of ceramics and glass or vitreous materials.

The topics for ceramics are: traditional ceramics (porcelain, sandstone, faience, etc.); advanced ceramics (with physicochemical, mechanical, electrical or magnetic properties); refractory ceramics (with special thermal properties).

The topics for vitreous materials are: oxide (silicate, borate, phosphate, borosilicate, etc.) and non-oxide (chalcogenide etc.) glasses for use in electronics, nuclear engineering or construction; special glass products used in high-tech advanced areas (chemical and thermal resistant glass, optical glass); glass fiber for insulation and reinforcement; vitrocermics; the use of glass waste.
