Processing and Characterization of Estructural and functional Ceramics (ProCaCef)
...
We are focused in the investigation and development of Structural and Functional Ceramics for Energy Applications and their Devices.

In particular:

A) Ceramics with mechanical performance: Laser assisted solidification of eutectic ceramics, also non-oxide ceramics, with exceptional mechanical resistance and resistant to high temperature corrosion, good behaviour against wear and thermal shock.
B) Functional ceramics for electrochemical applications and their devices: Ionic conductors for electrochemical devices (SOFC and SOEC cells, Li ion conductors, H2 and O2 membranes, etc.), and cell assembly.
C) Functional materials based on directionally solidified eutectics: with applications as CO2 membranes; Selective Thermal Emitters; Metamaterials; Photocatalysers, etc.
D) Laser assisted processing of ceramics and other materials: Melting, ablation, marking.
