Interfaces of Ceramic Materials
The objective of the present publication is to discuss various aspects relevant to the interface of ceramics from a number of standpoints that should as distinct as possible.
The aim has been reached by presenting the contributions of a wide spectrum of specialists. This approach enables the reader to grasp the present level of knowledge and to understand the problems in research of various fields relevant to ceramic interfaces. Further, it facilitates a charting of the direction of future research in these fields which are much too complex to be covered by a single scientific discipline.
The majority of papers have been prepared in review type so that researchers of other fields can easily gain very detailed understanding on the interfaces of ceramics. The topics covered reach from basic science to the frontier of advanced technologies.
