Research Topics

  • Quantitative X-ray diffraction (QXRD) by Rietveld refinement combined with the G-factor method, including models for the refinement of anisotropic crystallite sizes
  • Investigation of hydration reactions by in-situ QXRD, isothermal calorimetry and 1H-NMR
  • Hydration kinetics of partially amorphized calcium and magnesium phosphate cements
  • Effect of ionic dopants and organic additives like phytic acid or polymers on the hydration of calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate cements
  • Investigation of pre-fabricated cement pastes
  • QXRD characterization of lithium silicate glass ceramics for dental application
