Significant progress has been made over the past 30 years in handling silicon-based ceramics such as silicon nitride, silicon carbide, SiAlON, silicides and composites. A better understanding of processing parameters in various forming techniques, and of microstructure-property relationships, has led to substantial improvements in thermomechanical performance and reliability; as well as in cost reduction.
