  • Nichols, Eric (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2010-09)
    The systematic design of materials for energy production and remediation of environmental concerns, based on direct knowledge of the structural and optical absorption characteristics of layered and traditional perovskites, ...
  • Walsh, Conor James (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    This study focuses on a lead free, high temperature ceramic capacitor material having the base composition of (Bi0.5 Na0.5) TiO3. The goal is to modify this base composition to create a material that has X7R-like dielectric ...
  • Daneault, Jeffrey (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2019-05)
    Hyperthermal treatment of cancer has historically been used as an adjuvant to radiotherapy, and while effective it typically was used on near-surface caners. Synthesis and characterization of glass microspheres to be ...
  • Placek, Lana (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2016-03)
    Compositional modifications of traditional bioactive glasses were investigated to address adversity associated with the biological response after spinal cord injury (SCI); specifically the accumulation of calcium (Ca) ...
  • Hill, Brenden (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2012-04)
    The reduction of NixMg1-xAl2O4 in H2 to form nickel metal and a remnant oxide was characterized by XRD, HTXRD, TGA, pycnometry, TEM, and SEM. The aim of the work was to investigate the dynamics of the system to better ...
  • Luisi, Brian S (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2003)
    Aurivillius phases of the type Bi_{2}Sr_{2}Nb_{2}TiO_{12} and Bi_{1.6}Pb_{0.4}Sr_{2}Nb_{2}Ti_{1-x}Al_{x}O_{12} (0.0 ≤ x ≤ 0.8) were synthesized by the polymerized complex method involving an organo-metallic precursor. The ...
  • Harvey, Steven P. (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004)
    The polymerized complex method was utilized to synthesize n=3 Aurivillius compounds based on the parent phase Bi_{2}Sr_{2}Nb_{2}TiO_{12}. Results show that this is a viable option to replace solid-state synthesis of these ...
  • Bornstein, Kody (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2013-01)
    Colloid formation in As2O3-doped alkali galliosilicate glass was studied via reduction of Ga and As in a galliosilicate glass matrix. The colloids were formed by heat treatment of the glasses in a hydrogen H2 or deuterium ...
  • Rossington, Katherine (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 1999-10)
    This research investigated the colloidal behavior of kaolinitic clay in aqueous suspensions. The foundation of most current clay suspension behavior is based on early studies conducted prior to the application of colloidal ...
  • Gubb, Tyler A. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2016-09)
    Nanosheets are a class of materials defined by extreme anisotropy, typically with widths and thicknesses on the order of micrometers and nanometers, respectively. These materials are often synthesized from a bulk ceramic ...
  • Alberga, Michael (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2016-06)
    Beta-gallia rutile intergrowth materials (BGRs), a homologous series following Ga4Tin-4O2n-2 (15 ≤ n ≤ 25, odd), were investigated as potential n-type thermoelectric device candidates given their structural similarities ...
  • Ugorek, Michael S. (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    A comparative study of the microstructure and electrical properties was conducted on three different sintering techniques – microwave, fast – fire, and traditional – were investigated as a means of sintering 8 mol% YSZ. ...
  • Agudelo Bedoya, Nestor L. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2017-08)
    Pressure casting is increasingly a more valuable alternative for whiteware slip casting because it is less labor intensive, more efficient and requires less floor space in factories compared to bench casting in gypsum ...
