The Ceramic, Composite, and Optical Materials Center (CCOMC) functions as a complete ceramic science and engineering center developing synthesis and processing systems for powders at all length scales. Ranging from nanoscale particles to macroscale parts and devices. CCOMC develops leading-edge ceramic, polymer/ceramic composite, and nano materials and processes to improve the technical base that is needed by companies to compete successfully in the global marketplace.
CCOMC's mission is to drive development of competitive, reproducible ceramic, polymer/ceramic composites, particulate materials, and nanomaterials for advanced, high-performance systems. It does this by creating and transferring to industry members the new technologies and relevant technical base. CCOMC's research will help meet the ever-increasing demand for higher-performance ceramic, composite, and optical materials that can be readily processed for needed applications.
