Chemistry and Technology of Inorganic Materials
Doctoral Study Sub-programme, Faculty of Chemical Technology
The field of study is targeted on kinetics and mechanism of high-temperature processes, phase equilibria, colloidal-chemical phenomena in heterogeneous systems, interaction of materials with environment, modelling of materials structure and engineering study of processes during fabrication of glass, ceramics, glass-ceramics and inorganic binders inclusive their mathematical modelling. From the point of view of possible applications, the dissertation theses are oriented e.g. toward materials for photonics and electronics, biomaterials for hard tissue implants, materials for space research, composite materials for building industry or high-temperature applications, nano- and submicro- layers improving the functional properties of materials (e.g. optical, bactericidal, mechanical or chemical). During the study and own research work, the students obtain thorough knowledge about the preparation of inorganic non-metallic materials and their functional properties. They will meet the advanced analytical and characterization experimental methods for study of dependence among materials composition, structure and properties of materials as well as the mathematical methods and models for describing the technological processes and properties of inorganic non-metallic materials.
The graduates have comprehensive knowledge of chemistry and technology of inorganic non-metallic materials. They find employment in basic and applied research of glass, ceramics, glassceramics, building materials, advanced inorganic non-metallic materials or biomaterials at universities, academical institutions, research or technological centres in the Czech Republic or abroad. Further on, the graduates can be also be found in materials oriented industry at higher management positions connected with research and development.
