Material Science related (Technical) Mineralogy


The development of metal-ceramic composites, the transport in porous ceramic materials, the development of mixed ionic-electronic conductive membranes, and ithe kinetics and mechanism of the dehydroxilation reactions in micas are actual research topics in material science. 

We contribute also with our expertise in electron microscopy to several projects of the Adolf Merkle Institute  and Frimat dealing with the synthesis and properties of nanoparticles.
