Description / Abstract:


It has long been recognised that point defects play an essential role in materials processing.' An awareness is now growing that processing of ceramic materials and their final properties are strongly influenced, or even determined, by interfaces, such as grain boundaries, external and internal surfaces and dislocations." Specifically, this concerns functional materials, such as dielectrics, sensor-type materials, non-linear materials, superconductors and semiconductors." Therefore, the present trend of research in the science of ceramics aims at explanation of the impact of interfaces on properties and functionality of materials. Consequently, the research aims at the development of new materials for specific applications via interface engineering. The purpose of the present volume is to consider the recent trends in research on ceramic interfaces.
