UC3M & ICV-CSIC (Spain) – Cornell University (EEUU)

The purpose of the stay is to research about new synthesis routes in metal-ceramic composites (cermets) as well as the design of new nickel electroless plating routes.

– Research about the polymer-to-ceramic transformation process of preceramic polymers (PDC’s, in our case polysilazanes) to obtain mainly Si-based advanced ceramics such as Si3N4 and SiCN.

– Research about a new nickel electroless plating route and the effects of the different processing parameters. This technique includes the initial pretreatment of the primary particles (TiCN) in an SnCL2 and PdCl2 solutions to activate the surface for the subsequent plating.
