Functional oxide ceramics

Lupe [1]

We develop new synthesis and processing methods and explore the functional properties of complex oxide ceramics. Oxide ceramics possess a variety of properties that allow for a range of applications. We are especially interested in sensors, transparent conductive oxides, photocatalysts, thermoelectrics, multiferroics, bioceramics and electrode materials.


  • synthesis of metastable oxide polymorphs
  • growth of single crystals
  • AMn2O4 oxides with spinel structure, where A=Al3+, Ga3+, In3+...
  • multiferroic hexagonal layered oxides AMnO3, where A= Y3+, In3+
  • in-situ characterisation of structural phase transitions
  • high pressure and high temperature studies
