Research Interests

The research of Dr. S. Agathopoulos is in the area of ceramics, glasses, glass ceramics and composites for biomedical, functional and structural applications. Specifically:

  1. Advanced and traditional ceramics (preparation methods, mechanical and thermal properties, surface characterization).

  2. Bioceramics (development and synthesis of ceramics applied in biomedicine, biocompatibility).

  3. Interfaces of ceramics with biological liquids or liquid metals at high temperatures, (wettability, work of adhesion, interfacial energy), and ceramic-metal composites (joining techniques, brazing).
