Welcome from our director
The CCAC was created in 1989 with help from CoorsTek to serve as a focal point within the State of Colorado for interdisciplinary research and education on ceramics and related materials, including their synthesis, processing, manufacturing, properties and performance.
Today our center advances research in a large variety of materials of interest to industry and government. We work with about $4,000,000 in research funding per year from federal, state and industrial sources. Since its inception, the CCAC has maintained a strong connection to industry, especially in the ceramics area.
While the CCAC maintains and operates a plethora of equipment and facilities, its strength is in the students, postdocs, staff and faculty. If you are interested in more information, please feel free to contact us.
From the VPRTT: Good news – we will be standing down the requirement for research access requests effective immediately. (If you have a request pending, please assume it is approved.) However, please continue to follow these steps for accessing campus research...
PhD student Meagan Papac’s paper on triple ionic electronic conductors, written jointly with Vladan Stevanovic and Andriy Zakutayev at NREL was published today in Nature Materials
