Electroceramics, Materials, Properties, Applications, Second Edition provides a comprehensive treatment of the many aspects of ceramics and their electrical applications. The fundamentals of how electroceramics function are carefully introduced with their properties and applications also considered. Starting from elementary principles, the physical, chemical and mathematical background of the subject are discussed and wherever appropriate, a strong emphasis is placed on the relationship between microstructire and properties. The Second Edition has been fully revised and updated, building on the foundation of the earlier book to provide a concise text for all those working in the growing field of electroceramics.
* fully revised and updated to include the latest technological changes and developments in the field
* includes end of chapter problems and an extensive bibliography
* an Invaluable text for all Materials Science students.
* a useful reference for physicists, chemists and engineers involved in the area of electroceramics.
A comprehensive treatment of the many aspects of ceramics that are important because of their electrical applications. Describes the fundamentals of how electroceramics function, how they are made, their properties, and their applications, starting from elementary principles, and including the necessary physical, chemical, and mathematical background. Whenever appropriate, a strong emphasis is placed on the relationship between microstructure and properties. Outlines solid state physics, beginning with atomic structure and progressing to the principles underlying the main categories of electroceramics. For undergraduates in materials science.
