The Ceramics & Composites Laboratory (CCL) was established in 2001. Research pursued covers a variety of topics in the areas of:
(a) advanced and traditional ceramics
(b) ceramic & polymeric membranes and porous materials
(c) clay materials, nanotubes, fibers and composites
(d) glasses and biomaterials
Research approach is interdisciplinary and covers structural, chemistry and engineering aspects of materials. Work is extended through various collaborations with national and international research centers, other university departments and industrial partners.
Several graduate students are currently pursuing their PhD and MSc degrees, while more than 15 undergraduate students per year complete their Diploma Theses. Finally, the same facilities host four Laboratory courses of the Materials Science and Engineering Department (University of Ioannina).
