High Tech Ceramics Industry Review 2005
Crafting essential objects from clay is almost as old as humanity. Today's ceramics continue that story-new materials, products and processes figure prominently in many advanced technologies. From industrial tools to nanotechnology and biomaterials, ceramics are the cutting edge.
These new compositions are the key to the improved and more efficient state-of-the-art products in many fields: automotive, electronics and optics, superconductors, fuel cells, membranes and filters, piezoelectrics, heat exchangers, coatings, wear parts, armor and special reinforcements.
Ceramics is an industry that is far from aged. Instead this technology is vigorous and growing-advanced ceramics are meeting the rigorous demands of a high technology 21st century.
This anthology is based on BCC Research's monthly newsletter High Tech Ceramics News which keeps readers informed on who's involved, what technologies are being developed and commercialized, where the growing fields are, and which events are likely to shape the trends in the industry and why. This information is especially beneficial to researchers, manufacturers, materials suppliers and end users as they gain insight into this rapidly evolving advanced ceramics and related materials industry. The anthology covers topics on:
- Advanced Glasses
- Fiber and Composites
- Batteries and Fuel Cells
- Electronic Ceramics
- Metrology and Analysis
- Structural Ceramics
- Industry News
- Membranes and Filters
- Powders, Nano Ceramics
- Optical and Photonic Materials
