  • Ceramics
  • Glasses
  • Polymers
  • Polymer Matrix Composites

Industrial relevance

The CCL conducts research across a wide range of industrially relevant materials from electroceramics for battery applications to refractory materials for the steel industry. The group is keen to collaborate and offer consultancy on projects that could enhance business.
