Dept. of Materials Science & Engineering Seminar- Prof Clive Randall- Cold Sintering of Ceramics
It was great to host Prof. Clive Randall from the Pennsylvania State University and hear him present on cold sintering of ceramics at the The Department of Materials Science & Engineering at The University of Sheffield.
The technique of cold sintering was developed a number of years ago, and is now being applied to a wider range of functional ceramics, as it can offer up to an order of magnitude reduction in the sintering temperatures. As further research and development takes place, it is hoped that the technique can be applied to ceramics made in higher volumes, such as refractory materials, where the potential for energy end emissions savings would be huge.
