Nanoceramic production. Workers loading ceramic components into an oven for sintering. This involves heating the ceramic to just under its melting point. Atomic diffusion between the ceramic grains fuses them together giving remarkable strength. Photographed at the RUSNANO-VIRIAL nanocomposite factory at St.Petersburg, Russia, in 2011.
