Ceramic and colloidal processing Laboratory work

The course covers the production of ceramics and colloids from the basic scientific concepts and theories needed to understand the forming processes to the mechanisms and methods of sintering (firing) ceramics. Including the scientific principles behind the formation of colloidal dispersions.

CCMX Advanced Course - Inorganic Particle Synthesis by Precipitation: From Nanoparticles to Self-organised Mesocrystals and from Theory to Practice

The basics behind precipitation of particles in theory and in practice will be introduced. Fundamental concepts of supersaturation, nucleation, growth and aggregation will be discussed. Some basic methods used for inorganic powder and particles characterisation will also be briefly introduced.

Powder Diffraction School - Modern Syncrotron Methods

Modern synchrotron-radiation methods not only provide data of exceptional quality, but have allowed previously inaccessible experiments to be performed. The school will give a broad overview of all possibilities using synchrotron radiation, including hands-on practicals.
