Description of the thesis topic

The research project aims to study the densification of advanced functional ceramic oxides using innovative sintering processes (Cold Sintering Process, Hydrothermal Sintering and Spark Plasma Sintering) in order to produce materials that meet the specifications defined by the industrial partner (aesthetic criteria and mechanical strength).

The different tasks will consist :
- to ensure a literature survey (materials, processes)
- to implement sintering experiments using the three processes on commercial powders initially selected or even functionalised
- structural (X-ray diffraction), microstructural (electron microscopy, porosimetry), physico-chemical (thermogravimetric analysis) and mechanical characterization of the ceramics obtained.

The candidate should have strong skills in materials science (conventional ceramic processes, advanced characterizations).Basic knowledge of solid state chemistry and/or surface chemistry would be appreciated.
Fluency in scientific and professional English as well as writing skill(French/English) are expected. The candidate should have demonstrated real adaptability.

Work Context

Created in 1995, the Bordeaux Institute of Condensed Matter Chemistry (ICMCB)
focus its research on Solid Chemistry, Materials Science and
Molecular Sciences: designing, preparing, shaping and characterizing
materials to discover, master and optimize specific functions.
The ICMCB carries out fundamental research on model materials and / or
likely to have applications.
The complementarity of the approaches and the synergy thus allowed the Institute
consolidate its national and international position in the field of materials

Constraints and risks

- chemistry under pressure
- experiments with nanomaterials
