CEITEC VUT-DS208AAcad. year: 2020/2021
The PhD. course is focused on understanding of structural and functional properties of non-oxide ceramics. The major emphasis of this course is to extend the student’s knowledge and conceptual approaches. Major groups of non-oxide ceramics are described together with main processing steps. The basic approaches for a design of microstructure and composites are explained; related applications are revealed. This course includes a demonstration of non-oxide ceramic processing. The content of this course can be adapted for a PhD. thesis.
