The Advanced Technical Ceramics division supports German companies in the development and application of innovative and reliable ceramic materials and components essentially by

- the execution of test jobs and inspection orders,
- the development of novel testing methods and reference materials,
- the risk evaluation of ceramic raw materials and production processes,
- the organisation of interlaboratory tests,
- operating as assessor for accreditation and legal procedures

Research projects of the division conducted with partners from industry and research institutes range from material development to failure analysis of ceramic materials and components for information and communication technology, sensor technology, as well as power, automotive and mechanical engineering. All research activities are intimately connected with the development or refinement of reliable testing and characterization methods.
