Welcome to the Biomaterials & Corrosion Laboratory in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering!
In line with the demands of modern society, our lab is developing and studying advanced materials for a variety of applications, including biomedical, space, and harsh environments. The lab has gained national and international reputation in view of its unique application of electrochemistry, corrosion testing, wear monitoring and failure analysis in biomaterials science. It also provides materials selection, quality control and failure analysis services
to industrial, medical and defense organizations.
Biomaterials (e.g. electrochemically-assisted deposition of calcium phosphates
for orthopedic and dental implants) and medical devices.
Bio-Ferrography (e.g. for orthopedic applications and cancer diagnostics).
Environment-induced degradation of materials and hydrogen interaction with materials.
Electrodeposition and electroless plating of special alloys (e.g. rhenium-based
for high-temperature applications and catalysis) and electropolishing.
manufacturing (3D-printing) - powder bed fusion, directed energy deposition,
Applications are welcome from prospective candidates for graduate studies
and post-doctorate positions.
Companies are invited to undertake collaborative research projects in the aforementioned (and related) areas and consultancy services.
