On-demand rapid processing of complex-shaped ceramics by Hugo Curto

The development of additive manufacturing (AM) since the last decades enthusiastically increase the potentiality of these technologies. AM of ceramics is now reaching industrialization thanks to its advantages such as high precision, the versatility of the processed pieces, quick processing time and so on. Moreover, AM technologies like stereolithography (SLA) are referred as indirect technologies because the produced parts must be thermally debinded and sintered. Read More

Freeze casting of ultra-light ceramic foams by Hermina Hudelja

Highly porous, lightweight ceramics with high surface area are and high enough rigidity important in applications such as catalysis, thermal insulation and adsorption. There is a strong incentive to employ simple and green processes for the preparation of this family of ceramics. Unfortunately, conventional shaping techniques require sintering, which lowers porosity and surface area.Read More

Letter from YCN Committee Member, Marie Lasgorceix, France

Once upon a time the YCN... It's hard to describe such a rewarding experience in just a few lines. Four years ago, I was invited by Dominique Hautcoeur and Erkka Frankberg to join the YCN committee. At that time, I was not aware of the great opportunity that was offered to me. I was then realizing it afterwards through all the adventures carried out within this framework. Read More
