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. Advanced ceramic materials feature a variety of superior properties such as hardness, wear-, corrosion- and high temperature resistance. Our group's current research interests focus on:

  • Novel Processing Routes for Biofunctional Ceramics
  • Precursor derived Ceramics and Ceramers
  • Functionalization and Assembly of Ceramic Nanoparticles
  • Advanced Ceramic 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.

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.
