Advanced Multifunctional Electroceramics
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
As a relatively recent phenomenon, Electroceramics have had a profound impact on the so called "electronics revolution". Ceramic materials that have been specially formulated for specific electrical, electromagnetic and optical properties can be tailored for their use as insulators, ferroelectric materials, highly conductive ceramics, electrodes, MEMS, energy convertors, sensors and actuators, etc. The quest to push performance boundaries through further study into the fundamental aspects of electroceramics and their commercial applications is essential for the advancement of this science and technology. These works show the latest knowhow and new insights to the development of electroceramics
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The biennial conference provides an opportunity for researchers andengineers to share knowledge regarding ceramic materials that have beenspecially formulated for specific electrical, electromagnetic, and opticalproperties for use in electronics. The 25 selected papers discuss suchaspects as the fabrication and piezoelectric property of textured bismuthlayered structural ceramics by hot pressing techniques, the aluminum-inducedcrystallization of p<su>+ silicon pinholes to form the rear passivationcontact in a solar cell, thermal expansion and polarization behavior in leadtitanite/zinc oxide nanocomposite ceramics, the charge-discharge propertiesof non-linear dielectric capacitors, and boron doping effects on thestructural and optical properties of sol-gel transparent zinc oxide films.
