Doelstellingen: The department COPR deals with teaching and research in the domain of restorative dentistry. This encompasses cariology and endodontology, fixed and removable prosthodontics and child dentistry. Research activities are in three projects: 1. corrosion and degradation of dental materials and their effect on reconstituted in vitro epithelium models: Biocompatibility of dental materials using in vitro tests'. The need for ...
This research focuses on the hardening of integrated circuits (micro-chips) against ionizing radiation and high-energy particles encountered in space. Our mission is to design and test new (micro-/nano-)electronic circuits that withstand the effects of ionizing radiation.
In recent years Quantum Chemistry (i.e. the application of quantum mechanics to chemical problems such as structure, stability and properties of molecules and their behaviour during reactions) has made enormous progress via the so called Density Functional Theory (DFT). In this approach the electron density in each point is considered as the basic property of an atomic or molecular system from which all properties are derived. The main ...
We do research in following domains:
Research at the KU Leuven Orthodontic unit is focused on aspects of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics both in growing and non-growing populations. Growth, development and morphology are evaluated in three dimensions whenever applicable.
- Studies on the role of the MSX1-gen in the ethiology of cleft lip and palate and hypodontia. - Hormonal interactions with craniofacial morphology and growth. - The use of dental maturation score ...
The department of Periodontology conducts both clinical as well as more fundamental research. The clinical projects concentrate on an optimization of non-surgical periodontal therapy, diagnostics in Periodontology, planning and outcome of oral implants, diagnosis and treatment of halitosis. In 1996 the department created the Research Group for Microbial Adhesion. This new group covers research within a broad field of oral microbiology ...
The main activities of our research group are related to the development of new and improved materials systems and advanced production methods. The research focus is on alloy systems as well as on novel materials such as nanomaterials, coatings and thin films.
