Ceramics and Amorphous Solids


Ceramics and amorphous solids are one of the main categories of materials. They are incorporated into a wide range of applications that impact our everyday lives, include energy storage, nuclear waste storage and electronic device displays. UC Davis has had a long-standing tradition in research on ceramics and amorphous solids dating back to the founding of the program in 1966. Since then, we have remained at the forefront of this research as we seek to understand the interplay between their temperature and radiation-resistant properties, as well as their high toughness and optical properties.
