Welcome

to the Advanced Ceramics group at the University of Bremen:

Our research areas

We investigate, develop and engineer advanced ceramic materials for applications in the areas of biomaterials engineering, environmental engineering, energy harvesting devices and aerospace. Our group's current research interests focus on:

  • Novel Processing and Shaping Routes
  • Bioceramics
  • Precursor derived Ceramics (Ceramers)
  • Advanced Composites



Find out more about our current projects in the research section. We are always looking for collaborations; please contact us if you are interested. Currently we have open positions, please check for more details.

Take part in research

Interested in a master, bachelor, or diploma thesis topic in one of our research areas? We constantly offer challenging topics to work on.

About the Institute

Founded in 1994 as an endowment chair, the “Ceramics” chair was headed by Prof. Grathwohl till 2009 before retirement. Hereafter, in October 2009, this chair was merged together with the “Bioceramics” group which was a Juniorprofessorship position held by Prof. Rezwan since 2006. After the successful merging of both chairs, the new chair is now called “Advanced Ceramics” with Prof. Rezwan being in charge.
