CASC is delivering world-leading research as demonstrated by publishing in top journals, getting invited to give lectures at other top institutions and at international conferences, and by acquiring funds for additional collaborative projects.

Key Research Areas

These projects include Post doctoral research work at Imperial:

  • Fabrication of ternary carbides in Hf-Al-C system 
  • Graphene 3D networks 
  • Graphene enhancement of the photocatalytic activity of semiconductors
  • Processing of carbon fibre / UHTC composites Studying of micromechanical modes of deformation in born carbide using in-situ techniques
  • Silicon doped boron carbide
  • Development of oxidation bonded reaction sintered EBC on melt infiltrated SiC/SiC cermic matrix composites
  • Ceramic materials and shaping technologies for short life propulsion systems 
  • Processing and environmental protection of ultra-high temperature (>2000°C) and hard non-oxide ceramics
  • Transpiration Cooling Systems for Jet Engine Turbines and Hypersonic Flight
