The GlaSS ICV Group
Objective

The general objective of this group is the design, processing and characterisation of glasses, glass-ceramics and sol-gel materials, going from the structural features to properties (optical, mechanical, chemical, thermal, electrical, etc) and applications.

Research lines

The research lines are focused on topics related to glass, glass-ceramics and sol-gel materials from basic research up to applications in the industrial glass sector and other final users of glassy materials.

Aim of our projects

Topics connected to energy and environment research are the aim of most projects developed in the last 10 years. Different materials and components for fuel cells (PEMFC membranes, sealing glasses and glass-ceramics for MCFC and SOFC), solid electrolytes and electrodes for Li-batteries, low temperature sealing of systems in solar energy devices and nuclear plants, come together with protective and environmentally friendly anticorrosive coatings, mesostructure coatings with photocatalytic activity for abatement of water or gas pollutants and solar cells, nano glass-ceramics with photonic applications, and energy saving, an important issue with different approaches, from industrial glass furnaces to solar and heat control glasses for buildings.

Glasses, Glass-ceramics and Sol-gel materials for a Sustainable Society
