Advanced Flexible Ceramics: Emerging Applications

  • English
Ceramics and their composites are used in many different application fields. However, their flexibility, processability, and multifunctional ability are practically limited to their specific application field. For example in electronic equipment and high-temperature applications, failure of miniaturized materials is a huge problem mainly due to their low fusing temperature, so In order to enhance the working temperature of these materials the researcher needs to use ceramic materials, but you still have the problem of brittle fracture and catastrophic failure. In more recent times, it is now possible to develop the toughness of the ceramic structure. This brand new two-volume handbook provides detailed information on the properties and applications of advanced flexible ceramics. Key elements that are discussed are materials dependent flexible behavior; and important parameters such as microstructure and phases and how they will provide new direction for various applications, as well as the operational life of the ceramic. How flexible materials can influence smart behaviour (shape memory and self-healing) is also discussed in detail as well as thermal, physical, mechanical, electrical, and optical properties too. Various processing routes such as powder metallurgy, both physical and chemical vapor deposition, sol-gel, 3D print, and roll-to-roll processing are explained in detail. Divided over two volumes the first volume focuses on design, properties, and manufacturing and the second on emerging technological applications. Additional chapters are also included on cost-effectiveness and the global market, recycling and future challenges and perspectives. The handbook will be an essential reference resource for academic and industrial researchers working in the fields of refractory linings, high-temperature equipment, shielding, MEMS/NEMS and semiconductors, energy generation and storage, catalysis and environmental remediation, wearable textiles, transport, and biomedicine.

  • English
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is the most important thermal analysis technique used today and the most common thermal analysis instrument found in chemical characterization laboratories. DSC has become an everyday tool in characterization laboratories, but many researchers using this technique have a limited understanding of the true breadth of its capabilities. Up to now, there has been no book that would describe the application of DSC in all the various areas of materials chemistry. The Handbook of Differential Scanning Calorimetry has been written to fill that void. Consisting of three volumes, volume 3 is designed to explore the application of the DSC techniques within the field of polymers. This volume is designed to give the materials researchers and application chemists a preview of the full scope of capabilities for this technique within this field.
