Research topics
Creation of multifunctional ceramics by laser powder bed fusion
This work aims to enhance the laser absorptivity of ceramics by incorporating high laser-absorption nano-additives, and to develop multifunctional ceramic materials that simultaneously possess high strength, high toughness, and high electrical conductivity via ultra-high temperature laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) process.


This work can contribute the understanding of fabricating composite powders and new ceramic materials.
