The last progress meeting of 2020 of the DFG funded project on advanced microstructural characterisation of bioactive glasses and glass-ceramics, was held remotely on 17 December 2020. In this project, we collaborate with researchers from Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems (IMWS), group Nanomaterials and Nanoanalytics (GNN)  Halle, and from the research group of Prof. Delia Brauer at Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research, University of of Jena, in a project focusing on advanced in-situ characterization of bioactive glasses (BGs) and glass-ceramics. Different compositions of BGs have been investigated, which have been developed both by melting and by sol-gel methods. The latest article from this project, published in the J. European Ceramic Society [1] is available.
