Study of Ceramic Materials Research Center
The center, headed by Prof. Saad Tapuchi, Dean of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, established in 2015.
The center deals with developing ceramic materials from nano metric powders for high relative dielectric constant.
The basic researched compounds are:
The research takes into consideration variable parameter such as:
• Temperature profile
• Sintering temperature
• Grain size
•The cleanliness level of the powders.
The research center received grant, for two years, by KAMIN fund – 740,000 NIS and additional funding by the college.
The center employs students as research assistants, from different faculties: Mechanical, Chemical and Electrical, who receive decent scholarships for their work at the center.
The center works for international collaboration. Recently, there were initial contacts with researchers in South Korea, through the Research Foundation of South Korea, and the Center holds a list of researchers which interested to collaborate .
Services, Equipment and Means that the center makes available to its members:
An oven with temperature controller up to 1,600 degrees.
Powder grinding mill.
Suitable fume system
Accessories such as analytical scales, suitable pans, crucibles and the equipment required.
