Peter Greil’s research focuses on developing and manufacturing new types of ceramics. By imitating crystalline regularities, he changes properties such as crack healing that do not normally occur in such materials. He focuses on three main areas: non-brittle high-performance ceramics that are able to self heal cracks caused by damage, piezoelectric ceramics with auxetic deformation behaviour as well as microwave ceramics with specific band gap behaviour.
