MAT 408 Introduction to Ceramics
The course is a series of introductory level lectures describing the types of ceramic materials ranging from oxide carbides. The crystalline structure of common ceramics and the amorphous nature of glass will be introduced. Surfaces, interfaces, grain boundaries and other structural imperfections in ceramics will be discussed Microstructural development will be treated in the light of ceramic phase diagrams, phase transformations, and chemical reactions with and between solids, grain growth, sintering and vitrification.Thermal, optical, mechanical, electrical, and magnetic properties of different ceramics will be discussed.
