This book is a comprehensive overview of the major important areas of ceramic thin films and coatings. Twenty-one widely respected researchers survey the range of applications of ceramic films and coatings and the techniques used to prepare and characterize them. The book is directed toward potential users of the technology and will also provide a broad update for experts in the field. Ceramic films and coatings are active fields of research and widely used areas of technology. The relatively high hardness and inertness of ceramic materials make ceramic coatings of interest for protection of substrate materials against corrosion, oxidation and wear resistance. The electronic and optical properties of ceramics make these films and coatings important to many electronic and optical devices. The book presents a series of reviews of many of the most active and technically important areas of ceramic films and coatings. It is introduced by an overview of the uses and methods of preparation of ceramic films and coatings. Topics then surveyed include synthetic diamond thin films, high T(subscript c) superconducting films, sol-gel films, protective films for cutting tools, optical films, and electronic films. Also covered are recent advances in improving wear resistance by ion implantation, in providing corrosion resistance by enameling, and in providing thermal protection with plasma sprayed coatings. Major characterization techniques and their capabilities and limitations are also treated.

The broad field of thin film technology is based first of all on the film growth processes in general. The concepts of crystal structure and defects in crystalline thin films such as grain boundaries, dislocations and vacancies are examined. The general nature of film growth from atoms equilibrating with the service, through the initial stages of growth to film coalescence and zone models is also within the scope of this book as are evaporation, sputter deposition and chemical vapour deposition. Thin films are widely used in microelectronics, chemistry and a wide array of related fields. This book offers new research in this exploding field.

The contributions in this volume concentrate on recent progress in CVD, PVD, thermal spraying, epitaxial growth, sol/gel and related techniques used to deposit monolayer, multilayer, composite, hybrid and multifunctional ceramic thin/thick films and coatings on metal and ceramic substrates. The 71 papers, including 9 invited, report on the results of studies on the characterization of structural and functional properties of materials for a number of applications such as wear, erosion, corrosion, thermal protection, and uses in electronic, magnetic, optical and opto-electronic devices.

Ceramics are, in a general definition, materials that consist of man-made, inorganic, non-metallic solid material - either existing in a crystalline state or non-crystalline state (i.e., glasses). Materials characterization techniques are used to ensure the structural and surface integrity of ceramics for their use in a wide variety of applications, from thermal resistance to advanced electronic and optical technologies like fiber optics to structural uses. This book presents those techniques along with views on future trends in ceramics processing and advanced characterization technologies particularly appropriate to ceramics materials. Readers will find more on: Ceramic Materials preparation routes, including powder preparation by solution techniques and gas-phase techniques Formation techniques for ceramic films and coatings, thick films and bulk ceramics A review of ceramic microstructure, reactions, phase behavior, mechanical properties and electronic and magnetic ceramics

Ceramic Materials: Science and Engineering is an up-to-date treatment of ceramic science, engineering, and applications in a single, integrated text. Building on a foundation of crystal structures, phase equilibria, defects and the mechanical properties of ceramic materials, students are shown how these materials are processed for a broad diversity of applications in today's society. Concepts such as how and why ions move, how ceramics interact with light and magnetic fields, and how they respond to temperature changes are discussed in the context of their applications. References to the art and history of ceramics are included throughout the text. The text concludes with discussions of ceramics in biology and medicine, ceramics as gemstones and the role of ceramics in the interplay between industry and the environment. Extensively illustrated, the text also includes questions for the student and recommendations for additional reading. KEY FEATURES: Combines the treatment of bioceramics, furnaces, glass, optics, pores, gemstones, and point defects in a single text Provides abundant examples and illustrations relating theory to practical applications Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate teaching and as a reference for researchers in materials science Written by established and successful teachers and authors with experience in both research and industry

Progress in the development of oxygen ion and mixed conductors is responsible for innovations in gas sensors, fuel cells, oxygen permeation membranes, oxygen pumps and electrolyzers. Commercialization has been impeded by material stability and compatibility issues, high fabrication costs and an inadequate understanding of the interfacial phenomena controlling the operation of the devices. Here, a group of experts cover all the key topical areas, ranging from fundamentals relating to (a) defects, electrochemical and interfacial processes, (b) catalysis, electrocatalysis and gas reforming, to design and fabrication, including (c) advanced electroceramic processing methods, (d) materials selection and optimization, (e) and applications including scale-up, commercialization and competitive technologies. Readership: Materials scientists, chemists, physicists and chemical and electrical engineers, either first entering the field or active within it.
