Although ceramics have been known to mankind literally for millennia, research has never ceased. Apart from the classic uses as a bulk
material in pottery, construction, and decoration, the latter half of the twentieth century saw an explosive growth of application fields, such as
electrical and thermal insulators, wear-resistant bearings, surface coatings, lightweight armour, and aerospace materials. In addition to plain,
hard solids, modern ceramics come in many new guises such as fabrics, ultrathin films, microstructures and hybrid composites.

Built on the solid foundations laid down by the 20-volume series Materials Science and Technology, Ceramics Science and Technology picks
out this exciting material class and illuminates it from all sides. Materials scientists, engineers, chemists, biochemists, physicists and
medical researchers alike will fi nd this work a treasure trove for a wide range of ceramics knowledge from theory and fundamentals to practical approaches and problem solutions.
