Name: Mehmet Ali Gülgün
Prof. Gülgün's group focus on four major paths. First direction is microstructural engineering through sintering, densification and grain growth in functional polycrystalline ceramics. Second path is finding environmentally-friendlier alternative for cementitious materials in severe environments including construction materials for space-explorations. Third direction is fast ion-transporting materials for fuel cells, solar cells, Li-Ion batteries, conventional wet batteries. Fourth major direction is synthesis of oxide ceramics with tailored optical properties for phosphorescent or thermochromic applications.
