This postdoc is oriented in the flash sintering, a new innovative process allowing production of fully dense materials via sintering in a few seconds. In previous development of our research team, we prove flash sintering has an interesting potential to be applied to microwave sintering and spark plasma sintering.
The project objectives encompass two main axes: (i) the understanding of the main Multiphysics aspects involved in flash sintering and the underlying sintering mechanisms (ii) the establishment of stable and scalable ultra-rapid sintering conditions for a wide range of materials. Zirconia will be used as initial classical material, then electrical insulators and metallic materials like alumina and nickel will be investigated.
Attaining the project objectives requires a coupled approach between the Multiphysics simulation for the different ultra-rapid sintering approaches and the experimental calibration/verification of the developed model/approaches.
We are looking for a candidate having a strong background on sintering. We are interested in priority by young researcher (1 or 2 years after PhD) with a formation on materials science and/or mechanical & engineering science
