Material- and Process Hybridization for Multifunctional Ceramic and Glass Components

The demand for multifunctionality and the combination of materials and structures with different properties plays an increasing role for a variety of applications like surgical components, automotive parts or intelligent tools. Material hybrids allow distinctive property combinations like electrical conductivity/insulation, magnetism/non-magnetism, ductility/ hardness or visual appearance with differing colours. In addition, as known from MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems), hybrid components can be equipped with sensor or actor functions.
