Innovation in Ceramic Science and Engineering
Materials science is a key field in science and technology, and is indispensable for providing the groundwork for the next technological generation. Ceramics, in particular, advanced rapidly during the 20th century. Although current society now faces numerous difficulties with regard to recycling, energy conservation, environmental pollution and safety/reliability issues, ceramics are sure to play an important role in overcoming them.
The collection comprises 64 papers from various researchers in the fields of ceramics and related materials. Fundamental aspects, synthesis and processing, functional ceramics, engineering ceramics, micro/nano structures, and various applications are extensively discussed.
This book thus provides the most up-to-date know-how concerning all aspects of research and development in the field of advanced ceramics.
