Advanced ceramics: stable and functional materials

From a chemical point of view, advanced ceramics – like traditional ceramics – consist of compounds between metallic and non-metallic elements: oxides such as aluminium oxide and zirconium oxide, nitrides such as silicon nitride and titanium nitride, and carbides such as silicon carbide. The advanced ceramics family can be described as stable and functional materials. […]
