RESEARCH ACTIVITIES & EXPERTISES
 
  • Glass like coatings on glass, metal and fine ceramic powders (mechanical strength, corrosion protection, electro-rheology, decorative functions, photochromics, electrochromics)

  • Nano composites, consisting of metal and semiconductor nano particles in glass like and organic-inorganic hybrid matrices and theoretical and experimental investigation of their linear and nonlinear optical properties.

  • Development of environmental friendly ceramic pigments based on encapsulated nano particles.

  • Material and technology development for passive and active planar waveguides, based on SiO2-layers, Nanomer materials, lead silicate glasses (sol-gel) and chalcogenide glasses (melting)

  • Development of new nano composites with special optical properties

  • Development and characterisation of SiO2 gel and glass foils, fibers and bulk samples
