Roberto D’Ambrosio

Junior Researcher - Pisa

Research interests

Roberto’s research activities mainly concern the production of silicon carbide (SiC)-based Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) by means of Microwave-assisted Chemical Vapour Infiltration (MW-CVI). His interests range from manufacturing technologies and characterisation of CMCs materials to the design and study of microwave-assisted chemical reactors for processing of high-temperature materials.

Keywords: Materials Science and Ingeneering, Ceramic-matric composites, SiC/SiC, Chemical vapour infiltration (CVI), Microwave-assisted heating processes, Numerical modelling of electromagnetic-thermal problems
