This work represents a new approach to ceramics research. The mechanical properties of ceramics and ceramic-based composites are well understood and have been studied extensively in the past. This more profound understanding of physical properties, such as particularly low or high thermal conductivities, radiation penetration depth, electrical and magnetic responses etc., can now lead to the development of new materials having improved properties.

The application of ceramic materials is currently expanding into a wide range of areas, e.g. gas turbine assembly, engine components, electronic devices, bio-materials etc. But because ceramics pose problems with respect to their brittleness and low reliability, due to their intrinsic nature and/or processing defects, research related to the deformation and fracture of ceramics is still a subject of high priority.

High performance materials are needed in many thermomechanical applications, such as advanced jet engines or gas turbines, thermal protection of space planes, thermal engineering and nuclear fusion. Ceramic-matrix composites, reinforced with long fibers, are expected to be the most promising candidates for such applications. However, several key problems will have to be solved in the near future. These problems include, above all, the development of a superior thermomechanical performance and oxidation resistance for ceramic fibers and composites, highly efficient protection against corrosion, better fiber/matrix interface design and performance, and cost effective processing.

Electroceramics have long furthered the development of electronics, and underpin modern-day high-technology. The development of electroceramics in Japan has been especially marked: many new electroceramics such as ferrites, varistors and sensors, as well as superior manufacturing technologies have been the result.
