Halle-Jena-Erlangen collaboration on bioactive glass-ceramics: DFG project meeting in Erlangen

DFG-Projekttreffen Halle-Jena-Erlangen

The progress meeting of the DFG (German Science Foundation) funded project on advanced characterization of bioactive glass-ceramics was held at the Institute of Biomaterials, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, on 24th April 2019, organized by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini. Project partners from University of Jena (Prof. Delia S. Brauer), Dr. Altair Contreras), Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems (IMWS), (Dr. Araceli Pablos-Martin), met with Mr. Qaisar Nawaz (PhD student) and Prof. Boccaccini from the FAU Institute of Biomaterials. This collaborative research effort in the field of advanced microstructural characterisation of bioactive glasses and glass-ceramics is in its second year and is employing as special characterization techniques X-ray tomography and X-ray microscopy (XCT & XRM), available at project partner IMWS.
