Advanced glass and ceramic materials

Our department is involved in research on synthesis of advanced glass and ceramic materials and optimization of processing for various applications. Highlights of thisresearch theme is as following:

  • Non-crystalline nano-porous SiO2
  • Micro-porous SiO2 as an anode in Li-ion battery
  • Extraction of SiO2 from Rice Husk Ash
  • Al2O3 and ZrO2 based composites (Engineering ceramics)
  • Photo-catalytic, self-cleaning coating on glass and ceramics
  • High temperature physical chemistry
  • Thermodynamic and kinetic modelling
  • Processing for Waste-to-Energy
  • Functional ceramic tiles, ceramic wares and glass
