Fabrication and Characterization of Zirconia-Based New Ceramic Composites for Thermal Barrier Coatings
Ceramic nanocomposites became nowadays an important ingredient of many structural and electronic ceramics, as well as ceramic coatings. The same applies to chemically processed and environmental related ceramics. The performance and characteristics of ceramic components are considerably influenced by the characteristics of precursor powder. The outstanding properties possessed by advanced nanoceramics are achieved through exceptional composition and microstructure that require very careful control throughout the successive stages of the applied processing.
