High-performance Superconducting Ceramics Composites Based on REBCO

REBCO (Rare-Earth Barium Copper Oxides) is the most widespread form of high-temperature superconductors. High-temperature superconductors are produced in many forms, of which the most notable are single-grain composite bulks, superconducting tapes, sputtering targets, and granulates. High-temperature superconductors are used, due to their unique properties, such as energy transport and storage, frictionless bearings, space exploration, and many others.

Thin films

Thin films (with a thickness of low nanometers, up to multiple microns) can be prepared from various bulk materials and generally retain the properties of bulk material while improving other properties such as flexibility. Such films can be prepared by a wide variety of approaches and are used in many modern technologies, such as LEDs, semiconductors, optics, energy generation, and storage, etc.

Advanced Composites for the Construction Industry

Portland cement is has a significant CO2 footprint, and also requires a long curing time. Alternatives based on magnesium oxychloride (MOC)  and oxybromide (MOB) are promising a solution to both of these problems.  Both MOC and MOB are carbon neutral while having various superior properties compared to Portland cement. They have better compressive and flexural strength, superior resistance to fire and abrasion, and good thermal properties. This makes them a promising alternative to portland cement in the future.

Ceramics Composite Filters for Water Treatment

Ceramic foam filters (Al2O3–C, Al2O3, SiC–Al2O3, YSZ) are commonly used in many industrial applications. As the water quality plays a significant role to the health of the general population, these filters can be further modified by nano-sized inclusions in order enhance the quality of drinking water by removing pesticides, hormones and heavy metals, which pose a significant problem for the current technologies used in water treatment facilities.
